Team Milram has announced its eight-man rider roster for the Tour Méditerranéen from February 14-18, 2007. The UCI cat. 2.1 stage race in the south of France will be the start of the season for Igor Astarloa and Mirko Celestino, who will lead the otherwise young team.
Last year, Milram scored a victory at the 'Tour Med' with Elia Rigotto winning the fifth stage - a similar success is aspired this year. The Tour Méditerranéen starts on Wednesday with a team time trial over 26.2 kilometres in Gruissan. The event then continues through the south of France and ends across the border in Sanremo, Italy, after six stages.
The German-Italian team will be composed of: Igor Astarloa, Mirko Celestino, Andrey Grivko, Brett Lancaster, Mirco Lorenzetto, Elia Rigotto, Fabio Sabatini and Carlo Scognamiglio.
