After starting his season at last week’s Etoile de Besseges, with a fourth and third place in the first two stages, our European Champion Giacomo Nizzolo will aim tomorrow at the 183 km of the Almería Classic.
There will be some climbs to tackle in the first 100km of the race, but the last 75km back to Roquetas de Mar will be mostly flat and fast.
A power lineup has been assembled around Nizzolo, with the speedy Max Walscheid and Matteo Pelucchi also looking to play key roles in the final. Carlos Barbero, Sean Bennett, Victor Campenaerts and Emil Vinjebo round out our lineup of 7 riders.

Our team is looking forward to tomorrow’s Clásica de Almería. Giacomo already showed last week that he has reached the season at a level where he can already be competitive in some difficult sprints. Our expectation is that tomorrow it can be such a type of race, so with a strong team here, we will be fully committed to racing for victory.
