On paper the Liquigas Team is one of the favorite teams, but general manager Roberto Amadio knows that to win the Paris-Roubaix the good leg is not enough.
Liquigas’ line-up will focus on the pair composed by Filippo Pozzato and Manuel Quinziato, with Frederik Willems and Enrico Franzoi to play the part of protagonists: “Our strength stays in the fact to have an excellent quartet to count on,” says Amadio “and we’ve demonstrated it during all the North Campaign. Pozzato and Quinziato feel very good and Willems could be the jolly; Franzoi feels well but his condition will depend on the crash occurred during the Flanders. We’ve the right motivation: we hope to have fortune on our side to get the win.”
Filippo Pozzato and Manuel Quinziato think the same; today, with their teammates, they made a reconnaissance on the pavé:
“We covered one hundred kilometers, from twenty ones before the Arenberg forest to the Carrefour de l’Arbre,” says the rider from Vicenza . “The objective? Behave confidence with the difficult ground of the North Hell. Sunday we’ll start to give our best: it should be a pity if Liquigas, who was protagonist during these north races, didn’t get the win.”
Manuel Quinziato repeats his views: “The risks and the uncertainties represent the charm of the Roubaix but the condition is good, as well as the resolution to give our best.”
The Liquigas Team at the Paris-Roubaix: Maciej Bodnar, Francesco Chicchi, Enrico Franzoi, Murilo Fischer, Aliaksandr Kuchynski, Filippo Pozzato, Manuel Quinziato and Frederik Willems.
