The 37th Settimana Ciclistica Lombarda, April 5 - 9, will welcome some big stars of cycling. The race, starting and ending in Bergamo's city centre will feature Frank Vandenbroucke of Acqua & Sapone and Danile Nardello of Team LPR.
The 33 year-old Belgian, professional since 1994 and with victories in Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Paris-Nice, is re-building after knee problems earlier this year.
'Team Black and Green,' Team LPR, will head to the Bergamo race with Paolo Bailetti, Borut Bozic, Riccardo Chiarini, Andreas Dietziker, Raffaele Ferrara, Ignacio Gutierrez, Daniele Nardello and Nazareno Rossi.
At the last moment, Walter Proch was pulled from the line-up by Team Manager Davide Boifava because of the flu.
After a brilliant Critérium International in France, where Marco Mercato as the best young Italian in the general classification, Team LPR will point towards a success on Italian roads. The team will be captained by Nardello and Ferrara, with Directeur Sportif Mario Manzoni behind the wheel of the team car.
