GP Nobili / Milano-Sanremo
Movistar Team up for the fight after their two recent wins in the country: GP Nobili (Thursday), with Valverde in the line-up, and Milano-Sanremo (Sunday) resume Blues’ calendar
On Italian soil, after two wins in the last ten days -Valverde claimed a famous victory at Roma Maxima, while Malori took honours yesterday in the closing ITT of Tirreno-Adriatico-, will the Movistar Team continue their quest for success. The telephone squad is set to take part tomorrow in the 17th GP Nobili, before heading into the capital of Lombardy on Sunday for the first monument of the cycling spring: Milano-Sanremo.
The Piemontese semi-classic will see Alejandro Valverde notably featuring on its startlist, leading an eight-man roster completed by Fran Ventoso, Juanjo Lobato, Sylwester Szmyd, Andrey Amador, Dayer Quintana, Enrique Sanz and Jasha Sütterlin. In turn, the Classicissima on Sunday will take Movistar Team’s José Joaquín Rojas, Fran Ventoso, Andrey Amador, Dayer Quintana, Juanjo Lobato, Adriano Malori, Jasha Sütterlin and Enrique Sanz through the Riviera Ligure and to the Lungomare Calvino after season-longest 294km. Chente García Acosta will be sports director on both races.
