Lampre riders take to the track

Riders from the Lampre-Caffita team spent the second rest day of the Giro d'Italia riding on the track. But we're not talking wooden boards and bankings here. Rather, in order to get away from the traffic, Gilberto Simoni and his team-mates had a couple of hours of light training on the motor racing track at Monza.

"It was important today to pedal without the stress of the traffic. This moment in Monza have given us good moment useful to relax" said Giuseppe Martinelli, Technical Director of Lampre-Caffita team.
