The Domina Vacanze team has announced on its website that the team has arrived in Spain for the Vuelta, and that the team includes World Champion Mario Cipollini.
The Domina Vuelta team is:
Mario Cipollini, Giovanni Lombardi, Gianpaolo Mondini, Miguel Martin Perdiguero (Spa), Kyrylo Pospyeyev (Ukr), Michele Scarponi, Francesco Secchiari, Filippo Simeoni and Santos Gonzalez Capilla (Spa). Sport directors are Giuseppe Petito and Enrico Paolini.
General Manager Vincent Santoni says, “We have done what we had to do. The final contract didn't include our presence in the Spanish race, but we had discussed it in the initial phases, therefore, morally we had an obligation with the organizers. The attitude of Cipollini was decisive: He assumed responsibility to represent the team to its best. He has shown himself to be a true captain and an authentic champion of the world. For this I thank him."
