Giro d'Italia - Saunier Duval/Prodir Team Announced
Pietro and Matteo Algeri bring a talents young and old from the "Red Bird" Squad looking for victory in the Corsa Rosa with more opportunities for the red birds to sing. Gibo in better form than 2006.

The Saunier Duval/Prodir riders who will take part in the 90th edition of the Giro d´Italia, set to kick off on Saturday, will meet tonight in Milan.

Tomorrow, the team heads for Sardinia, the Italian island that will welcome the beginning of the race this year. Coached by Pietro and Matteo Algeri, the yellow team´s line-up for the first Grand Tour of the season includes these nine men.

Leonardo Piepoli
Manuele Mori
David Canada
Ángel "Litu" Gomez
Raivis Belohvosciks
Rubens Bertogliati

Pietro Algeri is happy with his riders´ good shape and highlights the goal they've set for the race, "Of course, our prime goal is to see Simoni as the Giro winner. I'm sure he can do it because he's become vastly experienced. Moreover, he told me that his physical condition is better now than in 2006. The whole team will work for him, including Riccò, who can learn a lot from Gibo.
This doesn´t mean we won't fight for stage wins: Riccò has a good chance to take mountaintop finish stages, and Piepoli or Mayo can win stages with difficult climbs. Then, men like Cañada or Mori on the mountains and "Litu" Gómez or Bertogliati on flat terrain will certainly be on the front."
