Tony Martin Headlines Roster in Algarve

Tony Martin Headlines Roster in Algarve

From Feb. 15th to the 19th, the Portuguese roads of the Algarve will host the 38th edition of the Volta ao Algarve. At the starting line the team will be lining up reigning champion Tony Martin.

"The Algarve will be Tony Martin's first stage race in 2012," said Sports Director Rik Van Slycke. "It will be important to understand to which point Tony is ready for the next races. The race features an uphill arrival that shouldn't make a difference for the men who are jostling for the general classification and a 25.8 km time trial on the last day on a flat circuit that will favour a time trial man with Martin's skills. On the team we can also count on the young (Michal) Kwiatkowski and on (Gerald) Ciolek, who is pedalling well and who still has some more room to grow. The team is motivated and ready to take to battle on the road."
