The team training at high-altitude in Tenerife (pics above).

Following a training camp on Tenerife, Ivan Basso and his Liquigas-Cannondale team-mates go into this weekend's Trofeo Laigueglia full of anticipation for what promises to be a successful season debut.

This Saturday's 184km event in Laigueglia is the beginning of Basso's path to the Tour de France, a race he hopes to win following his triumphant return to the winner's podium at last year's Giro d'Italia.

"The warmth of the Italian public always gives you a real thrill," said the popular Varesine, "With the spring races coming up, the Trofeo Laigueglia will be an important step for me. I'm fresh from two weeks' training in the mountains so I'll need time to adjust before I can get the most from all our work.

Back to the thread:

 

As part of the training regime they completed six repetitions of 1.5km climb that rose more than 150 vertical metres and blood collected at the top to test anaerobic threshold, power at the threshold and power/body weight ratio.

But I thought I did so well, the mis-spelled words, the capital letters, the extra punctuation. I thought the hub monitors and illiterate peasants would love it.

As you know, there is a highly scientific approach to the pro cycling scene - which does not include blood boosting / doping.

Fascinating.

Does it also include not winning anything? I think the French have been using that method for years...

To put your smile back, I posted a pic with them AND their helmets on.

No single file riding though... :P

I hope for your sake he will be a contender this year Airbender, he has looked lack lustre in the last tour.

 

I would love to see some real hectic competition in the GC standings.

 

Nibali may be the man in this team.
