Team Barloworld on test in Italy

After trips to Portugal, France and Switzerland, Team Barloworld is back on Italian roads as the riders get ready for the Tirreno-Adriatico stage race and the first big classic race of the season, Milan-San Remo. This week, the team met in Adro near Brescia for some fine-tune training, which made the riders ready for some racing this weekend at Milano-Torino (Saturday March 4) and Giro della Provincia di Lucca (Monday March 6).

Lead by directeur sportif Alberto Volpi, the following eight riders will ride in the two Italian races: Pedro Quintero Arreitunandia, Igor Astarloa (who started his season last weekend), Giampaolo Cheula, Mads Christensen, Enrico Degano (who won twice already at the GP Costa Azul), Alex Efimkin, Mauro Facci (an impressive third at the G.P. Haribo) and Hugo Manuel Sabido. The same riders will represent Team Barloworld in the Tirreno-Adriatico, beginning in Tivoli near Rome on March 8.
