Mosquera and García lead Xacobeo Galicia in Castilla y León

Ezequiel Mosquera and David García will lead Spanish Professional Continental outfit Xacobeo Galicia in the Vuelta a Castilla y León (March 23-27). The six riders to support the captains are Gustavo Domínguez, Juan Mourón, Alejandro Paleo, Alberto Fernández, Eduard Vorganov and Vladimir Isaychev.

For Mosquera it is the next-to-last race ahead of the Giro d'Italia, his first major objective this year. His final race one week ahead of Italy's Grand Tour is Giro de Trentino. Mosquera is looking forward to the Vuelta a Castilla y León in his home country. "I really like the route of this year's race," Mosquera said.

García will also race the Giro, but has a major objective before that – to defend his title in the Presidential Cycling Tour in Turkey (April 12-19).

The five stages in the Vuelta a Castilla y León will reward complete riders. There is a 28-kilometre time trial and two mountain top finishes, San Isidro and Laguna de Peces.
