Italian Damiano Cunego will participate with his Lampre team in the upcoming Paris-Nice, from March 9 - 16, the team announced on Friday. The two-time Tour of Lombardy winner will use the event as preparation for the Spring Classics. "Paris-Nice is sensible preparation for the Ardennes classics," said team manager Giuseppe Saronni.

Cunego will take part first in the Trofeo Laigueglia in Italy, and then the Volta a la Comunidad Valenciana in Spain before heading to Paris. "The invitation to Paris-Nice leads us to believe the ASO (organiser of the Paris-Nice and Tour de France) will probably receive confirmation of selection for the Tour. This is an important step in the season's programme of our riders," said Saronni.
