Team Barloworld will go into Milano-Sanremo with a three-pronged attack, led by captains Robert Hunter, Baden Cooke and Enrico Gasparotto, who promised Cyclingnews an attack on the penultimate stage of Tirreno and lived up to it. The Italian will have extra motivation on Saturday, saying "It is my birthday and I'm obviously very motivated. I've worked hard in recent weeks and I'm ready for the big day."

The race will also feature Mauricio Soler, who injured a knee in the GP Costa degli Etruscha last month. "I can feel that my form is getting better and better," said the Colombian climber, who made his return to the peloton in the Volta ao Santarem last week.

Barloworld for Milano-Sanremo: Robert Hunter, Baden Cooke, Enrico Gasparotto, Mauricio Soler, Paolo Longo Borghini, Gianpaolo Cheula, Patrick Calcagni and Carlo Scognamiglio.
