Italian Alessandro Ballan will lead his Lampre-Fondital squad at this week's Eneco Tour, after taking victory at the weekend's Vattenfall Cyclassics ProTour event in Germany. The Eneco-Tour starts Wednesday in Hasselt, Belgium, and ends a week later in Sittard, Netherlands.
"Ballan will be our main cyclist, considering also his beautiful victory in Vattenfall Cyclassic," Lampre-Fondital team manager Fabrizio Bontempi explained. "The rest of the team has great quality and skill on Northern roads".
German ProTour squad T-Mobile will be lead by Kim Kirchen, who won the event in 2002. The Luxembourger will be supported by two 'locals' - Dutchman Servais Kaven and Briton Roger Hammond, who resides in Belgium.
