Team Lampre is starting a three-day camp today in Darfo Boario Terme (Brescia), Italy. The Italian ProTour team will work on the riders' schedules for 2008 as well as finalizing technical materials.
The team of Giuseppe Saronni will head two fronts in 2008: the Classics and Grand Tours. Alessandro Ballan, winner of Ronde van Vlaanderen and Hamburg Cyclassics, will be the team's leader for the northern one-day races. Damiano Cunego, who recently won the Giro di Lombardia for a second time, will head the team for the Grand Tours. Recent news has Il Piccolo Principe leaning towards the Tour de France instead of his home tour, which he won in 2004.
Danilo Napolitano has been confirmed to race the Tour de France.
