Sánchez ready to defend in JCTDU

Once again, Liberty Seguros-Würth will make its season debut in Australia, taking part in the Jacob's Creek Tour Down Under from January 17-22. With Marino Lejarreta at the helm, the team will consist of Carlos Barredo, Koen de Kort, Eladio Sánchez, Luis León Sánchez, Iván Santos and Jose Joaquín Rojas and locals Allan Davis and Aaron Kemps.

The Liberty team dominated the race last year, with Luis Leon Sánchez winning the overall classification, Alberto Contador taking a stage and Allan Davis also riding very well. This year looks to be no different, with Sánchez saying that he will do "everything possible" to help Allan Davis win a stage, but not ruling out his own chances either.
