Angelo Furlan, the 31-year-old Italian sprinter, signed a one year agreement with Lampre-NGC for 2009. A professional since 2001, Furlan has 11 career victories, most notably two stages in the 2002 Vuelta a Espana 2002 [stage 17 and stage 20], the 2004 Coppa Bernocchi and one stage of the 2008 Tour of Poland.
"Joining a top level team such as Lampre-NGC is for me a huge joy," Furlan said. "I think I'm in the right place where I can find satisfaction. I feel good and I'm sure I can obtain important results."
"We're happy to welcome a powerful sprinter with great finishing speed," said Fabrizio Bontempi, Lampre-NGC sport director. "We noticed Furlan in the 2004 Coppa Bernocchi, now his time to wear the blue and fucsia colors has come."
