Italian bicycle manufacturer Colnago announced Friday the formation of a "brand new Italian team" Colnago CSF Inox. The team is comprised of many of the riders of this year's CSF Navigare squad, but will consist only of Italian riders under 25 years of age.
The exception is Domenico Pozzovivo, winner of a stage of the Settimana Lombarda this year, who is currently 25. Also on the roster is Marco Frapporti, a winner of a stage of the Giro della Provincia di Grosseto, and Filippo Savini who last year won a stage of the Presidential Tour of Turkey and the Tour de Langkawi.
"The young COLNAGO CSF Inox racers all share a competitive and combative spirit, and the same impetus is behind the name written on their shirts. With these principles of courage and a solid foundation, they will build an important future," the press release stated.
"In addition to an already packed competition schedule, their goal within the next three years is to race in the Grand Tours, the classics and the most prestigious races in the world."
