Team Milram has selected Erik Zabel and Alessandro Petacchi in its line up for the Tour of Flanders this Sunday. Zabel, fourth last year, is the more experienced of the pair on the Flemish roads, and will no doubt be looking for another top placing. The other riders in the squad are Simone Cadamuro, Alessandro Cortinovis, Maarten Den Bakker, Ralf Grabsch, Martin Muller and Fabio Sacchi. Substitutes: Alberto Ongarato and Marco Velo. Sports directors: Gianluigi Stanga and Antonio Bevilacqua.
Milram has also announced that it has a new sponsor: Bracca Acque Minerali S.p.a has signed a one year deal with the team to be its official water supplier.
