Barloworld up North next weekend

Team Barloworld will start their autumn racing programme in Belgium and France on the weekend. On Saturday, September 9, the Continental Pro team will take part in the prestigious Paris-Brussels race in Belgium, and then on Sunday, September 10, will ride the GP de Fourmies in Northern France.

After recovering from his health problems that affected his form during summer, Igor Astarloa hopes to be back to his best as he will be leader of the Barloworld team. He will be joined by Giosuè Bonomi, Diego Caccia, Ryan Cox, Enrico Degano, Alex Efimkin, Mads Christensen and Hugo Sabido. The same team, with Alberto Volpi directeur sportif for both races, will ride the GP de Fourmies the next day.

"We’re going through a difficult moment because several important riders have been affected by health problems, but we’re hopeful of having a successful end of season that could start with these two important classic one-day races," Volpi said.
