Lampre for M-SR

Alessandro Ballan's third place overall in Tirreno-Adriatico has not surprisingly guaranteed him a spot for this weekend's La Classicissima, Milano-Sanremo, with the 26 year-old also looking ready to tackle the Belgian Spring Classics.

Damiano Cunego's presence is also confirmed for M-SR, and together with Ballan, the eight-man Lampre-Fondital team includes Danilo Napolitano, Claudio Corioni, Giuliano Figueras, Paolo Fornaciari, Gorazd Stangelj and Matteo Carrara.

The Settimana Ciclistica Internazionale stage race follows starting next Tuesday March 21 and concluding March 25. There, team manager Giuseppe Martinelli has decided to run with Damiano Cunego, Marzio Bruseghin, Danilo Napolitano, Paolo Tiralongo, Morris Possoni, Tadej Valjavec, Gorazd Stangelj and Sylvester Szmyd.
