Fanelli to Amore & Vita

Following the signatures of Daniele Di Batte, Simone Guidi and Christofer Stevenson, Amore & Vita has acquired another rider for its 2006 roster in Ivan Fanelli. The 27 year-old rode for Amore & Vita in 2003 and 2004, but switched to LPR this season. However, while there he clashed with fellow sprinter Danilo Napolitano and did not have a good year. His former and future team manager Ivano Fanini believes Fanelli has great potential "not only as a sprinter, but as a complete rider, a Bettini-type when he is in form, who can cope with a hard parcours and contend for the victory."

Fanelli commented, "2006 will be a decisive year for me, and in Amore & Vita I've found the right environment and the necessary space to reach my best form and show my worth. Thanks to Cristian and Ivano who believed in me again and gave me the chance to return. I will not let them down.
