After a historic Tour de France stage win by Robert Hunter and the overall of the Vuelta a Burgos with Mauricio Soler, the Barloworld squad is ready to hit the shores of the UK to take place in the Tour of Britain starting September 9.

The British-registered team will be on the prowl for stage wins with South African sprinter Hunter, who is on form and focused after recently extending his contract with Team Barloworld for another year.

The team also hope local hero Geraint Thomas can also do well on home roads, and will be testing out stagiaire Ben Swift for the race. The team will also include Italians Giosuè Bonomi, Diego Caccia and Enrico Degano completing the six-rider team that will be directed by Alberto Volpi.
