Liberty recons the TT

On the Giro's second rest day, Liberty Seguros took the opportunity to reconnoitre the course of Thursday's 50 km time trial in Pontedra. The team trained for a total of three hours while checking out the course.

Team director Marino Lejarreta commented that it wasn't the easiest of days. "In this zone of Italy there is too much traffic," he said."And we could not see the parcours calmly, but it was sufficient."

Liberty's Giampaolo Caruso (9th on GC), is not a time trial specialist, but is looking forward to the mountain stages coming up. "I am calm," he said. "My aim is to go out and do it well and, especially, I have to think that in the last week, anything can happen. It's so hard that it almost doesn't matter about the time that you have lost before."

Caruso was also happy because he was visited by his brother, as well as former Juventus player Fabrizio Ravanelli, who wanted to wish him the best.
