Online cycling store Comobike.com has signed on as an official partner to ProTour Team Lampre for 2008, in what is believed to be the first major partnership between a ProTour outfit and an online store. The two Italian organizations have a history with one another, with Comobike.com managing the online selling of the squad's blue-fuchsia team merchandise, which has led to the extension of the relationship in 2008.

"Comobike.com is proud that they will be official partner of pro cycling team Lampre for the 2008 season where this world class web shop name will be found on the cycle jersey," said Comobike.com's owner Brent Copeland.

The 25 rider-strong team, owned by Giuseppe Saronni, will begin its season this weekend when the Tour Down Under - the year's opening ProTour round - kicks off on Sunday evening in Adelaide, South Australia.
