Swiss Team Lpr has confirmed the signing of Paolo Valoti (Domina Vacanze), one of the 'left-over' riders of the Ferretti/Sony-Ericsson blowup. Valoti, who won the Coppa Agostoni as well as the Coppa Placci this season, will be riding for the Professional Continental outfit during the next two years.
"We're satisfied by this new signing," said team manager Omar Piscina. "Valoti is the last rider to arrive, and we're very happy to have contracted a winner with this much experience. Now we'll think of our racing programme and concentrate on getting as much satisfaction next year as we have done this season."
