Liberty Seguros' young talent Luis León Sanchez, who suffered a fractured right wrist in Gent-Wevelgem on April 6, has fully recovered and is back in training. He intends to return to competition in the Clasico Alcobendas (Madrid), on May 7-8. Sanchez was able to train just five days after the crash, and removed his plaster on April 16.
"For two weeks already, I've been training normally," said Sanchez. "I don't have any problems with my hand and I only have a thick bandage on it. I believe that this rest has been good, because I didn't touch the bike for a few days, and it refreshed me physically and mentally. I was going non-stop from the Tour Down Under."
Besides Alcobendas, Sanchez will also ride the Volta a Catalunya, Euskal Bizikleta and the teams time trial in Eindhoven. The most important thing is that he is included among the 13 men fighting for a place in Liberty's Tour de France team. "For anyone it's a dream to do a grand tour and, if it is the Tour, even better," he said. "Manolo Sáiz has already said to me at the beginning of season that I could go to the Tour, but now everything depends on how I go in these next races."
