Sastre delayed in travel to California

Carlos Sastre's travels were effected by a snow storm en route to California on Sunday, where he will participate in the Tour of California (February 15-22). Heavy snow in central Spain scuppered his plans to join his Cervélo teammates, who are already training in the US.

Sastre was surprised by the winter weather. "When I woke up there were 50 centimetres of snow." He said he left on time, but the traffic en route had caused severe delays. Sastre finally arrived at the airport when the plane was still parked, "but the doors were already closed."

Sastre exchanged his ticket for a flight on Monday morning and returned home.
