Team Barloworld is logging some pre-season miles in Tuscany at the coastal resort of Marina di Bibbona.
Under the guidance of team manager Claudio Corti, 18 riders are conducting their camp which runs through January 26. Only Columbia's Mauricio Soler is missing. His arrival has been delayed due to visa problems, but he is expected at the camp on Tuesday.
Considering the busy schedule of races the team planning to ride in 2008, Claudio Corti has included Flavio Miozzo as a third directeur sportif. He will join Alberto Volpi and Valerio Tebaldi for the season. The 55 year-old is from Padova in northeast Italy and has a lot of experience in professional cycling, including several seasons with Corti at the Saeco team.
