Chicchi to Quick.Step-Innergetic

Italian Francesco Chicchi has signed a deal to ride with Quick Step-Innergetic, that will see the 24 year-old riding alongside the World Champion Tom Boonen during the 2006 season.

"I am really happy and lucky to have the opportunity to ride in the same team as both the Olympic and World Champions," said Chicchi. "My objective is that of being useful to Boonen in the final sprints and hopefully also gaining a few wins for myself where my sprinting ability will be required."
