Cunego debut at Clasica de Almeria

Lampre-Davitamon is happy over a good 2006 debut for Damiano Cunego: the Italian finished eighth in the Clasica de Almeria in Spain this Sunday, which was won by Francisco Perez (Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears). The race was especially tough because of a strong wind that put all the riders in difficulties.

"In a race hardened by the strong wind, finishing with the best racers it’s a good signal for Damiano," explained team director Giuseppe Martinelli. "In his first race, Cunego showed that is in quite good shape. But I’m sorry about our three riders that crashed because of the wind: we will see how they do tomorrow morning."
