Fred Rodriguez: Fast Freddie's Fables

Nationality: USA
Team: Vini Caldirola - So.di

This is the fourth Tour de France for the Colombian-born Vini Caldirola - So.di rider whose back-to-back USPRO championships in 2000 and 2001 earned him the nickname 'Captain America'.

Tour de France entries

So far this year, the 29-year-old sprinter has won stages at the Tour of Rhodes and Tour of Georgia - and might have done better than second overall at Georgia had he not been controversially penalised by officials for pacing behind his team car to rejoin the peloton after a crash.

Fast Freddy says he has just one target at the Tour: to win a stage. He'll be keeping us informed of his progress toward that goal in his Tour de France diary.
