Movistar look to continue their recent success on Italian soil when they line up in two races this week. Tomorrow Alejandro Valverde leads the team in GP Nobili Rubinetterie while Jose Joaquin Rojas and Francisco Ventoso target success in the first monument of the season, Milan-Sanremo.

 

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 -, the Movistar Team continue their quest for success on Italian soil. Tomorrow the telephone squad is set to take part 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 start ist, 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. 

 

Valverde had originnally targeted Milan-Sanremo but with the decision to remove the Pompiana, he won't take the risk of doing the often nervous and crash-marred classic. Instead, he will target success in tomorrow's hillier warm-up race before heading to Northern Europe for a taste of the cobbles as he will do a few Belgian races to prepare for the paves of the Tour de France.

 

Instead, the team will look to Jose Joaquin Rojas to deliver a podium result in the Italian classic. The Spanaird is in excellent condition after finishing fourth overall in the recent Paris-Nice. He will team up with another fast finisher, Francisco Ventoso, to lead the team while the team can also count on Juan Jose Lobato as a third option in case of a sprint finish.
