Liquigas in France

The Liquigas team will take part in the two French races this weekend: the Tour du Haut Var on Saturday, February 18, and the Classic Haribo, on Sunday, February 19. Team manager Mario Chiesa will lead a squad featuring some young talented riders: Daniele Colli, Michael Albasini, Vincenzo Nibali, Eros Capecchi, Mauro Da Dalto, Francesco Failli, Nicola Loda, and Charles Wegelius.

"These races are very different," said Chiesa. "The Tour du Haut Var has a tough undulating route. I expect especially Nibali and Albasini to perform well. On the other hand, the route of the Classic Haribo is best for sprinters. So, Colli may have a chance to win."
