LAMPRE-MERIDA for World Tour Belgian races
Lampre Merida Team f_chiari LAMPRE-MERIDA is going to take part in two World Tour Belgian races.

The blue-fuchsia-green technical staff selected these riders in order to face Gp Harelbeke (28 March) and Gand-Wevelgem (30 march): Filippo Pozzato (winner in Harelbeke in 2009), Niccolò Bonifazio, Davide Cimolai, Luca Dodi, Elia Favilli, Sacha Modolo, Andrea Palini and Maximiliano Richeze.

Sport directors Maini and Marzano will be supported by masseurs Capelli, Del Gallo and Santerini, by mechanics Baron and Bortoluzzo, by doctor De Grandi and by driver Bozzolo.

“Gp Harelbeke and Gand-Wevelgem wil lbe the first Belgian races for the team in 2014, so it will be important for us to have a good approach, also considering that they’re World Tour events – sport director Maini explained – Tomorrow we’ll evaluate how Pozzato, Modolo, Cimolai and Richeze will have recovered from the hard efforts and the cold of Milano-Sanremo: the course is demanding, only top riders win here. For us, it will be important to have a proper team spirit.

Gand-Wevelgem will give more chances to fast wheels, so it could be interesting to check how Modolo will familiarize with this kind of races. Attention also to Pozzato: his skills for Belgian classics is always huge”.
