The Lampre-Caffita team has flown to the USA for the Wachovia Cycling Series this week. Six riders plus director Bruno Vicino departed Malpensa airport on Sunday morning bound for Philadelphia. The races are:
May 31: Wachovia Invitational, Lancaster (PA), 147 km
June 2: Wachovia Classic, Trenton (NJ), 160 km
June 5: Wachovia USPRO Championship, Philadelphia (PA), 260 km
Lampre will be represented by: Alessandro Ballan, Gerrit Glomser, Marco Marzano, Samuele Marzoli, Andreas Matzbacher and Dario Pieri.
"I'm convinced to go there with a competitive team. Marzoli is ready for the sprints and Ballan, Glomser and Matzbacher will have their chance if the race is going stronger," said Vicino.
