MADRID, Spain (January 27) – The new Spanish road racing team Liberty Seguros (an insurance company) has opted for handlebars and front forks by Oval Concepts. The Swiss-American parts manufacturer has some ultra-streamlined road and time trial handlebars, and recently fought out a dispute with the UCI (International Cycling Union) over the admissibility of their slotted Jetstream forks. Oval Concepts won, so that teams may opt for the fast forks. Liberty Seguros is the new main sponsor of the team formerly known as Once, led by Manolo Saiz. The core team is Spanish, with a handful of foreigners from Poland, Czech republic, Italy and the USA. Top riders are Roberto Heras and Igor Gonzales de Galdeano (both winner of the Vuelta a Espagna), coming man Isidro Nozal and Marcos Serrano (2nd on last years’ Road World Championships).(OB)
