Nairo Quintana will ride in Italy for the first time this year when he prepares the Giro campaign by doing the Roma Maxima and leading Movistar in the Tirreno-Adriatico. The team have a less powerful roster for Paris-Nice where an in-form Ion Izagirre looks likely to get his chance while Alejandro Valverde will do the Strade Bianche and Roma Maxima this weekend.

 

Following a sparkling start to their 2014 season, with eight victories, the Movistar Team will fulfil a busy schedule during the upcoming two weeks, taking part in three one-day events in Italy – the GP Camaiore (Thursday), the Strade Bianche (Saturday) and Roma Maxima (Sunday) – and the two stageraces set to resume action in the UCI WorldTour: Paris-Nice (from Sunday 9th to 16th) and Tirreno-Adriatico (Wednesday, 12 - Tuesday, 18.)

 

Alejandro Valverde will be taking part at both classics in the weekend - but not Milano-Sanremo, after the recent route change - while Nairo Quintana will show up at Roma Máxima before starting Tirreno-Adriatico. Like last year, Valverde will skip both big WorldTour races while Quintana will be backed by most of the team that will also support him in the Giro.

 

Valverde has had an excellent start to the season and will target success in Saturday's Strade Bianche while sprinter Francisco Ventoso will be the leader in Saturday's Roma Maxima. The team will also do tomorrow's GO Camaiore where Benat Intxausti, John Gadret, and Andrey Amador will get their chance.

 

For the Paris-Nice, the team has a more open squad. Jose Joaquin Rojas will be there for the sprints while an in-form Ion Izagirre will hope to continue his momentum. His brother Gorka and Jesus Herrada will also be options on the versatile course while John Gadret will hope to shine on home soil.

 

The full Movistar Team lineups for all five races are as shown:

 

G. P. CAMAIORE
Amador, Gadret, Intxausti, Lastras, Dayer Quintana, Sanz, Sütterlin, Szmyd

 

STRADE BIANCHE
Amador, Castroviejo, Intxausti, Lastras, Sanz, Sütterlin, Valverde, Ventoso

 

ROMA MAXIMA
Antón, Lastras, Nairo, Quintana, Dayer Quintana, Sanz, Sütterlin, Valverde, Ventoso (Reserves: Castroviejo, Intxausti.)

 

PARIS-NICE
Erviti, Gadret, Gutiérrez, Jesús Herrada, Gorka Izagirre, Ion Izagirre, Rojas, Szmyd

 

TIRRENO-ADRIATICO
Amador, Antón, Capecchi, Castroviejo, Dowsett, Intxausti, Malori, Nairo Quintana
