La Lampre per la Grande Boucle
Il Team Lampre è pronto per il 95 Tour de France. Damiano Cunego, Alessandro Ballan, Matteo Bono, Marzio Bruseghin, Marco Marzano, Massimiliano Mori, Daniele Righi, Sylwester Szmyd e Paolo Tiralongo arriveranno mercoledì a Brest, città dalla quale sabato prenderà il via la Grande Boucle.

In ammiraglia siederanno i ds Maurizio Piovani e Guido Bontempi, supportati dal dottor Carlo Guardascione e dal dottor Andrea Andreazzoli, dai massaggiatori Omar Bertolone, Luciano Borgognoni, Fabio Della Torre, Umberto Inselvini e Massimiliano Napolitano, dai meccanici Luca Bortoluzzo, Ezio Bozzolo, Enrico Pengo e Gabriele Tosello, e dal responsabile della comunicazione Andrea Appiani.

La squadra del general manager Saronni sarà compatta nel sostenere le ambizioni del capitano Damiano Cunego: Bono, Mori e Righi sono uomini in grado di guidare Cunego durante le fasi centrali della corsa e nei tratti di pianura, mentre in montagna il capitano della Lampre avrà al suo fianco gli scalatori Marzano, Szmyd e Tiralongo.

Ballan e Bruseghin saranno il valore aggiunto della Lampre: Alessandro potrà rivelarsi utile spalla di Cunego e al contempo avrà lo spazio per coltivare le giuste ambizioni di risultato nelle tappe a lui più congeniali; Marzio saprà certamente far valere per il bene della squadra la sua regolarità ed esperienza, sia in salita che in pianura.
