Team Lampre is ready for its final ProTour race of the season, the Tour of Poland, which will run from September 14 to 20. They will arrive at the start, an opening team time trial in Warsaw, with Marco Bandiera, Matteo Bono, Francesco Gavazzi, Grendene, Roberto Longo, David Loosli, Mirco Lorenzetto and Sylvester Szmyd.

"The team that will be in Poland will be similar to the one that took part in Detuschland Tour and Vattenfall Cyclassics," said Fabrizio Bontempi, Lampre's director. "Lorenzetto and Loosli are in good condition, we'll try to take advantage of their fit."

"Szmyd will have enthusiasm because he'll race on hometown roads," he said. "He'll try to compete in the overall standing. It will be interesting to see Grendene in his second race as pro."
