The Italian Continental team Ceramica Flaminia has confirmed two riders for the 2006 season. The first is 24 year-old sprinter/climber Gianluca Geremia, who comes to the team from Zalf Fior Desire. "Geremia comes from a team that is synonymous with guarantee," said Ceramica Flaminia team manager Roberto Marrone. "He stands out in both the sprints and also has a good base and carries himself well on the climbs. He will be a precious element of our team in the sprints, especially in a group with a limited number of riders."

The team also confirmed the re-signing of 27 year-old Maurizio Varini, winner of the uphill time trial in this year's Course de la Solidarité Olympique in Poland. "Varini has a lot of talent, he's 27 and in 2006 will be in his third season as a professional," said Marrone. "With the experience and the confidence acquired this year, I think we will see the results of the work that he has done. Varini will be one of our main riders."

The team has a solid future ahead of it, as Ceramica Flaminia will continue its sponsorship for another three seasons. Next year, Zazzeri Rubinetterie will come on board as a co-sponsor. Marrone expects to sign at least three more new riders.
