Karpin Galicia will participate at the Vuelta a Murcia and has announced a strong lineup for the March 7-11 event. The Spanish Professional Continental squad is looking forward to the event, staged in the South-East of Spain, where it hopes to go one spot better than Eduard Vorganov's second place in last weekend's Clasica de Almeria.
Marcos Serrano, who started well in the Vuelta a Andalucia, will turn his attention to the individual time trial on the fourth stage. He commented to regmurcia.com that, "this is a [area] where I bettered myself over the years, and I want to know at what point I am now."
Time trial specialist Isidro Nozal says he likes the event's course and that the time trial motivate him. "The time-trial is my specialty, and when a tour contains one, I'm even more motivated, because this rises my chances compared to a climber," said Nozal.
Nozal believes a home town advantage makes Alejandro Valverde the favourite for the event. "He will be riding in his home region and he showed in Valencia that he has got a really great competing form," noted Nozal.
