Colnago-CSF Inox were officially presented today at the factory of their team sponsor in Cambiago, Italy. With all but three of their 16-rider, all-Italian roster under the age of 25, the young Professional Continental squad will aim to perform strongly at a schedule of races that it hopes will include the Giro d'Italia.

The team will be lead by two of the riders to have surpassed a quarter of a century in age. Sprinter Mattia Gavazzi, 26, and Domenico Pozzovivo, 27. The latter finished ninth overall at the 2008 Giro d'Italia and will the team's main hope of a high finish, should it be granted an invitation by race organisers this year. Gavazzi is coming off a successful final season with Serramenti PVC Diquigiovanni - Androni Giocattoli, where he recorded eleven victories in 2009.

Manuel Belletti is another rider to have come across from Serramenti PVC Diquigiovanni - Androni Giocattoli and will also be joined by neo-pros Gianluca Brambilla, Alberto Contoli, Sascha Modolo and Stefano Pirazzi on the team's roster.

The team will be directed by Bruno Reverberi.
