Flèche Wallonne will also be the next stop on what the Lampre-Fondital team describes as its "expedition" to the Northern classics. The team will field a seven-rider squad for Flèche Wallonne, a race that direttore sportivo Fabrizio Bontempi describes as "a special race because of its hard finish at Huy."
Despite the steep final climb, Bontempi said, "We aim to get a good results. I think that [Evgueni] Petrov and [Tadej] Valjavec could do good things and that all the team could be competitive".
The line-up will be: Giuliano Figueras, Ruggero Marzoli, Marco Marzano, Salvatore Commesso, Evgueni Petrov, Tadej Valjavec and Patxi Vila.
