Ezequiel Mosquera will lead Spanish Professional Continental team Xacobeo Galicia in the Giro di Grosseto, Italy, from February 13 to 15. The team will travel to the presentation of the teams on Thursday.
Xacobeo will use Grossetto as a first step to get used to the Giro d'Italia, which the team will ride in May. Despite Mosquera being the leader, the team will expect even more out of Gustavo César Veloso and Carlos Castaño, who started their season preparations earlier.
There is a clear sign that the team has stepped it up a notch. Manager Álvaro Pino has been invited to the Foro Pedro Ferrándiz next Thursday. This forum is held jointly by the organisers of the three Grand Tours. Angelo Zomegnan (Giro d'Italia), Christian Prudhomme (Tour de France) and Javier Guillén (Vuelta a España) will host the event.
