Damiano Cunego's Lampre-Fondital team acquitted itself well in Thursday's Giro team time trial between Piacenza and Cremona. The boys in blue and fuchsia finished eighth, 1'04 behind Team CSC - a gap that they had predicted before the race.

"We knew that we should have to play in defence," said team manager Giuseppe Saronni. "We hoped to limit the gap to 40-45 seconds, we got 20 seconds more: that is not a problem. We have to consider that we arranged a team perfect for the climbs, and other teams have cyclists that are perfect for the time trial. We will see the results at the end of the Giro."
