Liquigas-Doimo 2010

Team Liquigas-Doimo is preparing to face 2010 season, its sixth season after the return to the professional cycling world, with a line up of 28 riders: 19 of them confirmed from 2009, 9 will ride for the first time in the green and blue jersey.

Robert Kiserlovski and Elia Viviani Signed
Robert Kiserlovski, the 23 years old Croatian rider that in 2009 was part of Fuji-Servetto team, and Elia Viviani, a 20 year old neo-professional rider from Marchiol Sport were the last two riders signed this year tha concluded the reinforcement campaign of Liquigas-Doimo.

Kiserlovski will debut in January, while Viviani will start his new adventure in April, after the track World Championship under 23 planned in Denmark at the end of March.

The first meeting of green and blue team will take place, from 27th November to December 4th at Passo San Pellegrino in Val di Fassa, near Trento, where Liquigas-Doimo had already trained in preparation for the most important events of 2009, such as the Giro d’Italia and Tour de France.

All the top talents of the team have returned to ride for Roberto Amadio including: Ivan Basso, Roman Kreuziger, Daniele Bennati, Vincenzo Nibali, Franco Pellizotti, and Olivier Zaugg with talented young riders like Frederik Willems, Jacopo Guarnieri and Mauro Finetto who showed their promise in 2009.

Te talent on the team is a good balance also with G.C. threats for the GT's and stage races, Sprinters, and very talented climbers essential to support their Grand Tour efforts. I think we can expect the team to have a raised profile in the results in 2010 garnering more wins than last season.

The team management will meet as well at the end of the month. The management team is composed of team manager Roberto Amadio, directeur sportif Stefano Zanatta, Dario Mariuzzo, Mario Scirea, Paolo Slongo and, for new season, Alberto Volpi and Biagio Conte, all 28 riders will be present for the first meeting.

Liquigas-Doimo, 28 corridori nell’organico 2010.
Il 27 novembre inizia la nuova stagione
Con gli inserimenti di Robert Kiserlovski e Elia Viviani si è chiusa la campagna acquisti. Primo raduno in programma al Passo San Pellegrino, fino al 4 dicembre

Corridori in organico, di cui nove alla prima esperienza con la maglia verde-blu, il team Liquigas-Doimo si prepara ad affrontare la stagione 2010, la sesta dopo il rientro nel mondo del ciclismo professionistico.

I giovani Robert Kiserlovski, croato di 23 anni che nel 2009 ha vestito la maglia della Fuji-Servetto, e Elia Viviani, neoprofessionista classe ’89 proveniente dalla Marchiol Sport, hanno chiuso la campagna di rafforzamento della Liquigas-Doimo. Se per Kiserlovski il debutto avverrà regolarmente a gennaio, per vedere all’opera Viviani bisognerà attendere aprile. Il veronese, già campione europeo under 23 su pista, sarà infatti impegnato a preparare il campionato del mondo su pista in programma, a fine marzo, in Danimarca.

Il primo raduno del team verde-blu avrà luogo dal 27 novembre al 4 dicembre al Passo San Pellegrino, località della Val di Fassa, in provincia di Trento, che durante la stagione appena conclusa ha ospitato i ritiri della Liquigas-Doimo in vista dei grandi appuntamenti come il Giro d’Italia e il Tour de France. Oltre al management, composto dal team manager Roberto Amadio, dai direttori sportivi Stefano Zanatta, Dario Mariuzzo, Mario Scirea, Paolo Slongo e dai nuovi innesti Alberto Volpi e Biagio Conte, saranno presenti tutti i 28 corridori.
