Polish rider Marcin Sapa will join the Italian Lampre squad under a one-year contract, the team announced Friday. The 32-year-old comes from the DHL - Author squad, and came recommended after a strong performance in the Tour of Poland.
The Polish national road race champion, Sapa took the overall sprint classification in his national Tour. "We noticed Marcin during the last Tour of Poland," Lampre's manager Giuseppe Saronni said. "Sapa tried several breakaway attempts and it was not so easy for the bunch to chase him. Taking the advice of the Tour of Poland organizer, we choose Sapa in order to continue the tradition of very good Polish cyclists in the blue and fuchsia, who will allow the Lampre company to obtain high visibility in Poland."
