The Liquigas team will head to Benicásim, Spain for its second informal team camp on December 10-19. 29 riders from the blue and green team will get back together after it's time at the Salsomaggiore Terme in Italy last week to plan for next season and work on team dynamics.
Team manager Stefano Zanatta will lead the camp along with Mario Scirea and Paolo Slongo. "After the check made in Salsomaggiore Terme it's high time to get into the saddle again," Zanatta explained. "We will spend ten important days to plan the new season and to cement the understanding between riders and technical staff."
The team will split into two groups at the camp: one focused on the early season and other riders hoping to perform well later. "We will dedicate a special care to the group including Bennati, Pozzato and Chicchi," Zanatta continued. "These are the riders expected to have a good start of the season; for them we have already planned a specific work."
