While Mauricio Soler and his team-mates are racing the Giro d'Italia first stages, another eight Team Barloworld riders are tackling the Tour de Picardie. The short French stage race, won by South African Rob Hunter last year, will start on Friday 16 May, ending on Sunday 18.

Baden Cooke, who recently took victory in the Clásica Alcobendas, will be in the squad together with Hunter, who will use the race to regain form in light of the Tour de France. With the duo are Portuguese Hugo Sabido, Italian Diego Caccia, Giampaolo Cheula and Marco Corti, South African John-Lee Augustyn and Daryl Impey.
