Iñigo Cuesta's special prep for Dauphiné

CSC rider Iñigo Cuesta will participate in a century-style event on June 7, which carries his name. The Spaniard will ride part of the 150-kilometre long Clásica Cicloturista Internacional Iñigo Cuesta. The event takes place in Villarcayo (Burgos). The third edition of this Cicloturista, open to anyone older than 18, will have several mountains, with the altos de La Matanela (km 46.5), La Braguía (km 70.5), Del Campillo (km 89) and the Portillo de Lunada (km 108).

Cuesta, one of the most senior riders in the peloton and faithful lieutenant to Carlos Sastre, confirmed his availability for the outing, organised by his hometown club, the CC Villarcayo. "I will be at the start and will do a part of the ride. But I cannot go all the way to the finish, as I have to travel to France, for the start of the Dauphiné Libéré the next day."
