After Andrea and Simone, Francesco Masciarelli will join the professional ranks, riding along side his two brothers at Acqua & Sapone. All three Pescara boys will be under the guidance of their dad, Palmiro, famous gregario of Francesco Moser.
The third youngest, Francesco, 20 years-old, will join his bothers, Andrea, 24, and Simone, 26, who have been racing together for the past three years (starting with Vini Caldirola in 2003). For 2007, the Masciarelli trio will be joined at Acqua & Sapone by Stefano Garzelli, Dario Andriotto (both from Liquigas), Massimo Codol (from Tenax-Salmilano), Giuseppe Muraglia (from Team LPR), and Frank Vandenbroucke.
