Astarloa in America

Team Barloworld will spend eight days racing in the USA in early June, riding the Triple Crown in Pennsylvania. The Team will ride the Lancaster Classic on Sunday June 4, the Reading Classic on Thursday June 8, and then the Philadelphia International Championship on Sunday June 11.

The team will be led by directeur sportif Chris Andersen, with Spain's Igor Astarloa team captain. The races also will be suited to sprinters Enrico Degano and Giosuè Bonomi. They will be supported by Diego Caccia, James Perry and Tom Southam.

"American cycling is very different to that in Europe but it's always an interesting experience" Barloworld team manager Claudio Corti said. "The race in Philadelphia is the most important. It's 240 km long and on a tough circuit where Astarloa could do well. The other races are shorter and easier."
