Liberty Seguros prepares in the cold

In order to get them used to what will be a very chilly week of racing in Paris-Nice, Liberty Seguros team manager Manolo Saiz ordered his boys to train outside in the snow on Saturday. Apart from this, the riders also did some indoor work to complete the day, and Andrey Kashechkin and Aitor Osa used the time trial bikes to familiarise themselves with the BH machines they will use this season.

The race will begin tomorrow in Paris with a 4.8 km prologue, the only time trial of this edition. Liberty's Luis Leon Sanchez says he is looking forward to it, but is a little unsure of his form. "I have trained very well, but I have not raced since Australia and that is not the best way to confront a 4 kilometre prologue like this one," he said.
