Italian team Naturino-Sapore di Mare has announced its roster for the GP Città di Chiasso and the GP di Lugano taking place on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 of February. Filippo Simeoni, Luigi Sestili, Massimo Giunti, Luca Pierfelici, Massimiliano Gentili, Alexander Bazhenov, Cristian Gasperoni, Emanuele Rizza and Leonardo Giordani will line up at the events under the supervision of directeur sportif Antonio Salutini.
"They are two hard and very demanding races," Salutini said. "We will participate with a highly-experienced team, of which some riders may well be up for victory like the Russian Bazhenov or Giordani, who have already a lot of kilometres in their legs. Our young neo-pro Pierfelici will also make its debut."
