Heras wants to prove himself

Roberto Heras will lead the Liberty Seguros-Würth team in the Dauphiné Libéré, which starts tomorrow in Chambéry with a time trial. The Bejarano, who yesterday finished a reconnaissance of the Tour's critical stages, comes to the Dauphine in good form and without pressure to get results.

"Now I'm not obsessed about being 100 percent, because there is still so much time until the Tour and even more until the mountains," said Heras. "I have been in competition since last month and what I want is to prove myself a bit and to confirm that I am good enough with regard to the others."
