Two teams, CSF Group-Navigare and Lampre - NGC, made last minute additions to their rosters on Friday.

CSF Group-Navigare signed its final rider when Umberto Nardecchia penned his name on a one-year contract. The 28-year-old Nardecchia makes the move from Ceramica Flaminia-Bossini Docce.

"I am a climber of 177cm in height and 67kgs in weight, and I hope that 2009 will be my first real season as a professional rider," said Nardecchia, who explained further, "In 2007 I worked as a baker for eight months, and I thought that I would never be back on a bike. So, I am very happy to obtain this new chance with CSF Group-Navigare."

Lampre - NGC was also busy adding to its roster. Tuscan-born Francesco Tomei, Francesco Tomei, 24, will join the team after inking a one-year contract. It will be his third year in the pro peloton after he made his debut in 2007.
