Team Barloworld target Laigueglia with a strong line-up

Following Robert Hunter's stage win at the Tour Méditerranéen and a string of other recent placings, Team Barloworld will target further success at the Trofeo Laigueglia on Saturday February 21 with three team leaders.

Team Manager Claudio Corti has selected a powerful line-up for the demanding race in the hills along the Liguria coast near San Remo. The 176km route for this year's race is harder than usual, with the climbs of the Passo Balestrino, Passo del Ginestro and the Cima Paravenna. The last climb could be the ideal place to launch a decisive attack because it is just 20km from the finish.

Team Barloworld's line-up will be lead by Steve Cummings, Chris Froome and Mauricio Soler. Cummings was second in the 2006 Trofeo Laigueglia, while Froome and Soler showed their form with an aggressive performance on the climb to Mont Faron on the last stage of the Tour of the Mediterranean.

Also in the team are South Africa's John-Lee Augustyn, Switzerland's Patrick Calcagni and Italians Diego Caccia, Gianpaolo Cheula and Marco Corti.
