Tinkoff Credit Systems continue its two-week stint in Marina di Grosseto, Italy. The team, with star riders Tyler Hamilton and Salvatore Commesso, have been on the costa Toscana since January 8, where they have been enjoying mild winter temperatures, around 15°C. The camp runs through January 24, which could be a good time to leave, since Italy is expecting colder temperatures.
The team, backed by Russian Oleg Tinkov, will be officially presented in Roma on Tuesday, January 23. Shortly after the presentation Tinkoff Credit Systems will make its 2007 debut in Malaysia, on February 2 (to 11) at the Tour de Langkawi.
The team confirmed to Cyclingnews yesterday that the boys for Langkawi will be "Sergey Klimov [Rus], Salvatore Commesso [Ita], Steffen Weigold [Ger], Pavel Brutt [Rus] and Elio Aggiano [Ita], with the sixth rider to be determined." Meanwhile, another contingent will make the team's European debut in the GP d'Ouverture La Marseillaise on February 6.
A full listing of the team can be found on the Cyclingnewsteams database.
