Haimar ready for Dauphiné test

Haimar will, together with Samu and Mikel, lead the team's charge in the Dauphiné, starting tomorrow. He spoke to Marca about his ambitions for the race: "It's a very demanding race, and it wears you out. The stages are hard, and the riders are sharpening their teeth for the Tour. There are two very hard stages in the Alps, and the crono is also very demanding. We hope that experience will make the difference". Haimar finished 2nd overall in the Dauphiné in 2000, but will not be obsessed with reaching the podium this time around. "It's the last race ahead of the Tour, and it's necessary to be in good form", he said. "But it's also necessary to remember that the Tour is just around the corner, so I won't overdo it. But we'll do our best". With the form he's showing these days, "doing our best" might just be good enough to win the whole thing.
