Team Milram announced that top sprinter Alessandro Petacchi is to further "improve his condition" at the Volta ao Algarve (UCI category 2.1) from February 21-25. From next Wednesday on, eight Milram riders led by Alessandro Petacchi will start at the stage race through the South of Portugal over 949.4 kilometres.

With its hilly profile, the Volta ao Algarve is an ideal preparation for the season's next highlights, as well as a good opportunity to "further optimise the Milram-train" according to sports director Antonio Bevilacqua.

The team's roster for the Portuguese event will be: Alessandro Petacchi, Alessandro Cortinovis, Volodymyr Diudia, Alberto Ongarato, Björn Schröder, Fabio Sacchi, Marcel Sieberg and Marco Velo.
