The Lampre-Caffita team will not have to worry about running out of cold meats and salami this year, after inking a deal with the Raspini company, which will become the team's official supplier of these products. "For us it is a great pleasure to have this company Raspini as a partner for this year's season, a company which has always been looked after by one family, that of Mr. Umberto, who says that they are just as proud to be dealing with this team. Cycling is a popular sport and the need for our healthy salami and cold meats is always there," said the team in a statement.
Raspini said there was "a very positive feeling after last year's Giro d'Italia," where the company was an official partner of the race, and will continue to be so this year. It has now decided to take things one step further and get more involved in cycling by sponsoring a team.
