Liquigas takes four aces to Pologne

Starting in Warsaw on Monday, September 4, the Liquigas squad for the Tour de Pologne will be captained by four riders who are in peak form: Stefano Garzelli, Vincenzo Nibali, Manuel Quinziato and Enrico Gasparotto.

All of them want to win a stage and have a good placement on the overall ranking. Said team manager Stefano Zanatta: "We start with good expectations and the riders' morale is at its peak. This race may surprise us till the very end, especially in the last two stages. That's why we'd rather be on guard."

For the four Liquigas 'captains', especially Garzelli and Nibali, the Tour de Pologne is one last chance to demonstrate to Italian technical director Franco Ballerini they deserve a place in the 'squadra azurra' at the world road championships.

The squad is completed by Eros Capecchi, Alberto Curtolo, Mauro Da Dalto and Roman Kreuziger.
