The Acqua & Sapone-Caffè Mokambo team has named its riders for the Vuelta a Asturias, which begins on Friday. After Kanstantsin Siutsou and Andrea Tonti finished second and fifth in the Subida a Naranco yesterday, the team is hopeful of more good results in Asturias. The remainder of the squad is composed of: Alexandr Arekeev, Luca Celli, Alessandro Donati, Rinaldo Nocentini, Giuseppe Palumbo, and Andrea Masciarelli, with Bruno Cenghialta as D.S.
"We have a very competitive squad," said Cenghialta. "Tonti and Siutsou are going through a good period, and yesterday they showed they had great condition. Unfortunately, the victory eluded us a little there. Besides Tonti and Siutsou, we have Nocentini and Andrea Masciarelli, who also have good chances to do well."
