Swiss rider Andreas Dietziker is the latest acquisition for the LPR team. The 22 year-old who turned pro with Ed' System-Zvvz this year, has signed a two year deal with the Italian squad. Dietziker is an all-rounder with a good time trialing ability and a handy turn of speed from riding on the track. His best result this year was a third place in a stage and sixth overall in the Uniqa Classic.

"He's a young guy with big prospects," said LPR's PR man Massimiliano Bordogna. "Probably the most complete rider of all the Swiss riders in this current generation. In the under 23s he's done important things and in the next two years, we should see him mature. The results obtained in the last few seasons show that he is a rider with a very interesting potential. We are putting the greatest faith in Andreas Dietziker, now it just depends on him."
