Backstedt To Ride BEC CC Hill Climb

Liquigas star Magnus Backstedt will give the fans from his adopted home a chance to see him in action when he takes on the BEC CC hill climb on the Sunday 22nd October. Backstedt, who finished his road season with the Vuelta Espana, enjoyed three weeks of 'rest' which included riding Paris Tours, and is now into his track season preparation. Backstedt is using the hill climb as preparation for the track World Cup. "Yes its an unusual one for me, but very similar to the track efforts that I'm doing at the moment. I love these sort of events - there is a good quality field so it should be quite a challenge."
