Hi folks.

Time to put aside your Italian phrase books and dig out the Castillian ones. The Volta Ciclista a Catalunya runs from Monday 21st for 7 days. see this page:

http://www.voltacatalunya.cat/87volta.htm

This starts with the now fashionable short team time trial, then a couple of hilly stages, a mountain top finish, a mountain TT, a downhill stage and a tough circuit into a hill top finish in Barcelona.

Start list here:

    Hi Folks.

    Overall: scar Pereiro Sio
    TTT: T-Mobile.

    Oscar is an angry young man with a few critics in the (italian) media to silence. This has become a race where the Spanish TdF candidates hone their form and show their sponsors that they are building form to challenge in July. So Oscar is my obvious choice. No Idea what his 2007 form is like though... T-Mobile have got some big engines on board for the TTT so I'll have a stab at them.

    Cheers, Andy

    Ah, Catalunya, overshadowed by the Giro, no TV coverage, and stuck with weak squads cursing the long weeks between the classics and the Tour... the Pro Tour race no-one loves.

    Although I have a feeling that Mancebo or Sevilla may be up there at the end, but conscience dictates not picking either of them!

    Herd of gnus?

    No! What's the news?
