Degasperi to Flaminia

Italian pro continental team Ceramica Flaminia has engaged Ivan Degasperi to its lineup for the 2006 season. Degasperi, 25, will take part in the Giro d'Oro and Giro del Trentino for the team.

"Degasperi has always shown himself to be an important team man," said team manager Roberto Marrone. "He is a climbing rouleur who can strengthen the team."

Degasperi commented, "Up until now I've participated in grand fondos, but I am ready to return to the peloton. LAst year I had a good end of season and hoped to get a new contract. I almost gave up hope. I am very happy with the call up from Team Ceramica Flaminia; I will not disappoint the expectations of the diesses Borgheresi and Podenzana."

Degasperi replaces Mario Rovaletti, who was sacked last week.
