This week, the 11 shortlisted riders for the Tour de France from Liberty
Seguros-Würth will spend their time in the Spanish town of Puente Viesgo,
Cantabria. Here, the summoned cyclists will complete a final block of
training, but more importantly, Puente Viesgo will be the place where
team manager Manolo Saiz will select his nine-man line-up for La Grand
Boucle, which begins on the west coast of France in Fromentine on July
2, commencing with a 19 kilometre individual time trial.
Liberty Seguros-Würth short-list for TdF: René Andrle, Joseba
Beloki, Alberto Contador, Allan Davis, Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano, Roberto
Heras, Jörg Jaksche, Luis León Sanchez, Marcos Serrano, Ángel Vicioso
and Jan Hruska.
