One of five Pro Continental Teams invited to the 97th running of Milano-Sanremo, the Naturino-Sapore di Mare team is sending all all-Italian line-up bar Brazilian Murilo Fischer, who is expected to lead the team in the 294 kilometre ProTour classic.
"As we have seen at Tirreno-Adriatico, we will try to do places ourselves in a similar fashion at Milano-Sanremo," said team manager Vincenzo Santoni, who will assume the role of direttore sportivo on Saturday.
"Our team revolves around Murilo Fischer; he is our main rider, and for him Sanremo is the first real test. We will also try to go on the attack with young riders Agnoli and Ascani, who were very involved at Tirreno-Adriatico and left the race in great form."
Riders: Valerio Agnoli, Luca Ascani, Antonio Murilo Fischer, Cristian Gasperoni, Massimiliano Gentili, Leonardo Giordani, Massimo Giunti and Massimiliano Mori
Direttore Sportivo: Vincenzo Santoni
