Matteo Tosatto (Fassa Bortolo) will not be joining Alessandro Petacchi in Domina Vacanze next year, as the 31 year old has reached an agreement with Quick.Step team manager Patrick Lefevere for the next two seasons. "Matteo is a good rider and an athlete able to win races of good level," said Lefevere. "The technical characteristics and the experience of Matteo will be important to help Tom Boonen in the bunch sprints."
Quick Step-Innergetic has also named its team for the Tour De La Région Wallonne, which runs between July 25-29. Kevin De Weert, Addy Engels, Nick Nuyens, Luca Paolini, Filippo Pozzato, Jurgen Van Goolen, Rik Verbrugghe, and directeur sportif Rik Van Slycke will represent the Belgian formation.
