Team Barloworld has filled its squad for the 2008 season. After signing Italian sprinter Enrico Gasparotto and Austrian Christian Pfannberger, the team has filled the 19th and last spot with a young neo-pro rider with a familiar name, Marco Corti.

The 21 year-old happens to be the son of General Manager Claudio Corti. He has had a successful career as an amateur in Italy and rode for the Italian Junior team at the 2004 World Championships in Verona. He also rode for Barloworld this fall as a stagiaire.
