In search for the 50th victory of the World Tour telephone squad with their current sponsor, which could be anticipated in one of the three Italian races -Coppa Sabatini, Giro dell’Emilia, GP Beghelli- to be held from Thursday, Movistar Team departs this evening for the Chinese capital to complete their participation in the 2012 World Tour at the 2nd Tour of Beijing, over five stages from October, Tuesday 9 to Saturday 13.

Portuguese Rui Costa, Lithuanian Ignatas Konovalovas and Spaniards Juanjo CoboPablo Lastras, Jesús Herrada, Javier Iriarte, Enrique Sanz and Iván Gutiérrez will be Movistar Team’s eight riders in Asia.
