Eight Lampre-NGC cyclists, one director sportif, three mechanics, three masseurs and a doctor arrived in Doha on Wednesday, a few days prior to the start of the Tour of Qatar. The team, including Marco Bandiera, Mauro Da Dalto, Angelo Furlan, Mirco Lorenzetto, Massimiliano Mori, Marcin Sapa, Simon Spilak and Daniele Righi, has gotten in some quality training as it acclimates to the region.
Thanks to good weather conditions, they rode 120km on Wednesday, 160km on Thursday and then did light training and specific workouts to prepare for the opening stage, a 6km team time trial on the streets of the capital.
"We could train in a good way. That's important for everyone's fitness and for trying to realize good results in this race," said Fabrizio Bontempi
