Carlos Sastre optimistic

By Monika Prell

After his crash in Vuelta a Murcia stage one, Carlos Sastre has resumed training and hopes to be able to participate in the Vuelta a Castilla y León, March 26 to 30. According to, the CSC rider stated he has had trouble training. "I could not train normally since Murcia. After ten days I think that I'm recuperated so that I can start my training again," he said on Sunday after his first day training.

He is not sure but optimistic about a possible participation in the Vuelta a Castilla y León. For the moment "it's a doubt for me. During this coming week I intend to do well and train with prudence, with a goal to participate, but I don't want to make a rushed and perhaps a wrong decision."

Sastre is happy that "at the moment, the pains have disappeared and all is going well."
