GP Ouest-France

Movistar Team brings chances for all scenarios at GP Ouest-France, in high moral after Ventoso's victory yesterday at the finl stage in Poitou-Charentes

Only two days after the team’s last success with Fran Ventoso at the Tour de Poitou-Charentes, Movistar Team will take part on Sunday in their third from last classic of the 2012 World Tour schedule. The GP Ouest-France in Plouay, with a slightly different route from previous editions -the tough Côte de Ty-Marrec remains as the soft Côte du Lezot and Chapelle Saint-Anne-des-Bois are added-, yet with the same circuit structure -27 kilometers and nine laps to complete 243k-, will bring the telephone squad another opportunity to show the team’s colours after recent good performances this summer.

For the French event, Yvon Ledanois will direct an eight-man squad that, apart from Ventoso, will also feature Italian Giovanni Visconti, Portuguese Rui Costa, Belarus Vasil Kiryienka, Russian Vladimir Karpets and Spaniards Iván GutiérrezJavier Iriarte and Rubén Plaza.
