After its team presentation in Milan this week, the Liquigas-Cannondale team made its way to Sardinia, Italy for the squad's second training camp in as many months. Like their December camp the Italian ProTour team will spend the majority of the time fine-tuning their form, although this time around a number of riders were absent with the Tour Down Under set to start in the coming days.

However Nibali has made noises about wanting to start the Giro as well - a situation that played out in 2010 and saw Basso win the overall. Team boss Roberto Amadio has said he will make a final decision after the Spring Classics.
