José Luis Jaimerena fields a young team with 5 riders making their Grand Tour Debut.

Caisse d'Epargne Squad for the 2007 Giro
José Luis Jaimerena, team manager of the Team Caisse d’Epargne in the Giro d’Italia, analyzes as follows which the possibilities of the team are in the Italian stage race:

“The first week of the Giro is relatively easy, even if there could be important gaps by  the end of stage 4, Salerno-Montevergine di Mercogliano. The second part part of the race is much more difficult, with three or four mountain stages which will be very hard ones. Our objective is to win a stage and to do well in the overall ranking.

Grand Tour Debut for Five Riders
Our team will start from Sardinia with five riders who will take part in their first major tour: Eric Berthou, Alberto Losada, Alexei Markov, Mathieu Perget and José Joaquín Rojas. A rather inexperienced team, but with talented riders able to do well in every kind of stage.

The Pursuit for Stage Wins in Sprints and Mountains
 José Joaquín Rojas and Alexei Markov will take part in the sprints while David Arroyo and Alberto Losada can do very well in the mountain stages. The other riders who form the team will look for opportunities to go with some breakaways.”
