Slovenian Simon Spilak has signed to the Lampre-Fondital team for 2008. The 21 year-old rider has been on the professional Slovenian team Adria Mobil, and took a bronze medal in the Verona 2004 Junior World Championship. Milan Erzen, the Adria Mobil general manager, told Lampre manager Giuseppe Saronni about Spilak's talents, which brought him the Porec Trophy (2006), Cote Picarde (2007) and a 4th place in Tour de l'Avenir 2007.
"Being in Lampre-Fondital is a big joy," Spilak explained after signing his two year contract. "I will work hard in order to support the team. Waiting for the first training camp, I will begin to study Italian language."
