Russian ProTour team Katusha has added Italian sprinter Danilo Napolitano to its roster for 2009, according to Het Nieuwsblad. He'll join Gert Steegmans and Robbie McEwen on a one-year contract to form a three-pronged strike force.

The team will be presented in Moscow later this month, and with the likes of McEwen, Steegmans and Filippo Pozzato already confirmed for next year's lineup, it's sure to grab plenty of attention in a place not recognised for cycling since the days of the Soviet Union.
