South African rider Arien Torsius signed with Team Dilà Guerciotti to complete the squad's roster for 2008. She will be joined by experienced rider Dorte Lohse Rasmussen, also new to the team, and younger riders Alessia Massaccesi, Silvia Castoldi and Alice Donadoni. The team's new riders recently got the chance to spend time getting to know everyone at a team training camp before the holidays.
The 20 year-old Torsius raced for Rapha Condor in 2007. "Cycling in South Africa is strong in the way of development and good riders are moving to the pro ranks," said Massimiliano Bonanomi."As with all young cyclists, we will ask her to work hard in order to lay the foundation for successive seasons."
