Lampre-NGC will preview the Paris-Roubaix course Friday in France. The Italian team will ride 80 kilometres, from sector Troisvilles (27) to Hornaing (16).
Marco Bandiera, Mauro Da Dalto, Angelo Furlan, Massimiliano Mori, Daniele Righi, Marcin Sapa and Simon Spilak will race Paris-Roubaix for the team.
The 259 kilometre race contains 27 sectors of pavé, for a total of 52.9 kilometre. Last year, Tom Boonen (Quick Step) won ahead of Fabian Cancellara (Saxo Bank) and Lampre's Alessandro Ballan.
Ballan has to sit out the Northern Classics due to a cytomegalovirus. The World Champion will travel to France tomorrow to be with his Lampre-NGC teammates as they prepare for Sunday's Paris-Roubaix.
