Bennati a likely Liquigas man

Tour de France double stage winner Daniele Bennati is likely to ride in the acid-green colours of Liquigas for 2007. The 26 year-old rider from Arezzo is expected to join forces with Filippo Pozzato and ride under the guidance of Team Manager Roberto Amadio according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

This year with Lampre-Fondital 'Benna' has achieved seven victories, one of which was the sprint win after a 200-kilometre escape in the Tour's stage to Castelsarrasin. The rider who started his career in the services of Mario Cipollini in 2002 with Acqua & Sapone has also been linked to French team Ag2r Prévoyance but it is believe that he wants to stay with an Italian team.

Bennati's close teammate, Alessandro Ballan, will likely resign and stay with Lampre-Fondital.
