CSF Group Navigare signed Marcello Pavarin, 21, for its 2009 team. He will join Simone Stortoni and Enrico Zen at CSF Group in 2009 – all three making their professional debut.
"My characteristics... I am a strong and fast rider – a passista veloce. I have the ability to sprint from a gruppetto more so than a large bunch."
Pavarin, third in GP Liberazione and seventh in Giro del Cigno, signed a two-year contract.
