Commesso leaves Lampre

Lampre's Salvatore Commesso has announced he will ride in the colours of Giancarlo Ferretti's new team in 2006. The 30 year-old Italian has twice been champion of Italy, in 1999 and 2002. Commesso will join two-time Giro winner Gilberto Simoni and Australian Stuart O'Grady at the new squad, which is the 'reinvention' of the existing Fassa Bortolo outfit. Speculation is that Sony Ericsson will sponsor the team, and according to O'Grady, the new sponsor is engaged in a long-term deal.
