Lampre signs Mori

Team Lampre announced today that it signed Italian Manuele Mori for the 2009 and 2010 seasons. The 28 year-old from Empoli, Toscana, will race along side Damiano Cunego, Alessandro Ballan, Enrico Gasparotto and brother Massimiliano.

"I am very happy," Mori, winner of the 2007 Japan Cup, said in a press release. "Thanks to Lampre for its faith in what was a difficult year for me; I hope to repay them in the next two years.

The Italian ProTour team strengthened itself with the signing of Gasparotto last month. Both Italians are able to support Cunego and Ballan, and vie for their own wins.

"Manuele is a rider with character ... able make the escapes often," confirmed Team Manager Giuseppe Saronni.
