Lampre's riders were visited by UCI anti-doping controllers yesterday during the team's training camp in Darfo Boario Terme (Brescia), Italy. Fifteen of 22 riders (including Damiano Cunego, Alessandro Ballan and Danilo Napolitano) were submitted to blood and urine checks as part of the surprise visit.

In the second day of the camp, yesterday, Cunego and Ballan rode in the morning for two and a half hours near Lago d'Iseo. The captains, along with the other riders, spent the rest of their time performing fitness checks, reviewing gear and discussing their 2008 programmes with Team Manager Giuseppe Saronni.
