The nine riders of Spanish Liberty Seguros-Würth team went out training for the second time since their arrival in France. Team director Manolo Saiz advised the riders to work their team time trialling skills on the parcours of stage four, to be raced on July 5. Despite the risk of rain in Northern France, the Liberty train practised different alternatives to optimise power output for three hours. Finally, the rain did start and the team returned to its hotel.
Tomorrow, the team will undergo medical check-up before training again, and attending the official presentation of the Tour de France 2005 in the evening.
