CSF Group-Navigare training camp starts today and runs through February 15. The team's camp is being held at the Tenuta Il Cicalino in Massa Marittima (Grosseto). The last three days of the camp include the participation at the Giro della Provincia di Grosseto.
Not all riders will attend the whole camp, as some open the season on February 7, at the GP Costa degli Etruschi in Donoratico. Another part of the team heads to Malaysia, for the Tour de Langkawi (February 9-15).
Directeur Sportif Roberto Reverberi was hopeful the Langkawi team could once again do well. "For the sprints we have Ruben Bongiorno, who already rode in Argentina with his national team and gained a second place in a stage, and for the overall we have [Domenico] Pozzovivo and [Fortunato] Baliani, if their form will be good to stay with the best riders along the 'Genting Highlands'."
Tiziano Dall'Antonia, Federico Canuti and neo-pro Alan Marangoni will be free to go into breakaways.
