The Lampre-Merida team, including new signing Chris Horner and world champion Rui Costa, gathered in Mallorca this week for the annual Merida camp that showcases the brand's new bikes.

Thanks to some early season success by sprinter Sacha Modolo, who won two of the Challenge Mallorca races, the mood in the team is upbeat, despite the shadows cast on the Italian team because of the ongoing trial for doping in Mantova.

During the camp, Costa, Horner, Modolo, Jose Serpa, Diego Ulissi, Przemyslaw Niemiec and Damiano Cunego posed for news sets of official photographs and mixed with riders from the Merida mountain bike team.
