A tight and united group with Alejandro Valverde. That is the aspiration of the new Spanish coach, Pascual Momparler, with a view to the Road World Cup that will be held this year in Yorkshire (England) on September 29. "There are other teams more favorite than us, Belgium, Holland, France, Australia, but we have Valverde," Momparler said.
The director summons 16 cyclists who will stay at 9 next Tuesday. The world champion has a place reserved in his name by law, whatever his last name, but that site is not transferable. It cannot be occupied by another broker.
Those selected are Alejandro Valverde, Imanol Erviti, José Joaquín Rojas, Marc Soler, Mikel Landa, Gorka Izaguirre, Ion Izaguirre, Luis León Sánchez, Omar Fraile, Jonathan Castroviejo, David de la Cruz, Enric Mas, Jesús Herrada, Mikel Nieve, Iván García Cortina and Alex Aramburu.
"It's not a circuit as hard as Innsbruck's," Momparler explained. «It is not hard enough for us to dominate. It is a route of three steep slopes, with climbs to 7 and 8% of 180 kilometers that ends in a circuit that ends in a straight line at the top of 6 and 7% of 800 meters ». .
