The team will be directed by Giuseppe Martinelli
"On paper we have a very good team," said Martinelli. "Damiano has good condition and the team is ready to work for him. Then we also have Commesso who is very strong and deserves a win. I hope we will also be lucky."
The race will start from Padova and finish in Tiene. On the finishing circuits in Tiene, the riders will have to do the Cà Vecchia climb twice.
