Edita Pucinskaite of the German Equipe Nürnberger will head to Italy for next season. The Lithuanian rider will form part of the Dilà Cmax, run by Max Bonanomi. Pucinskaite signed a one-year contract with the team based in Lombardy.
The manager was satisfied with the signing. "It is something we wanted to accomplish and finally we managed. Edita is an athlete of great international status. She is also intelligent and experienced. For our team she certainly will be a key player."
Pucinskaite spent two seasons with Nürnberger, for which she won the 2007 Giro d'Italia.
Pucinskaite already resides in Monsummano Terme, Tuscany, which makes it easy to be close to the team. Spaniard Marta Vilajosana will also be part of Dilà Team Cmax.
