Lampre's 2005 Giro in Sky TV movie tonight

The Lampre-Caffita team's bid to win the 2005 Giro d'Italia will be shown on Sky Sport 2 tonight at 9.45 CEST. Called "28 Secondi" (28 Seconds), the film shows Gilberto Simoni's battle for the pink jersey, defending champion Damiano Cunego's difficult Giro and the story of the old team-mate Paolo Fornaciari.

Filmed over 23 days, including the crucial stage of the Colle delle Finestre, the film originated from an idea of Sky Sport journalist Umberto Nigri. "I worked with Giuseppe Martinelli last year when I made a movie on Marco Pantani at the Giro d'Italia," he said. "For the Giro this year it was really exciting to follow these two very different athletes, in the same team with the same target: to win the Giro".

The one hour film will be followed by interviews with team manager Giuseppe Saronni and the 'La Gazzetta dello Sport' journalist Pier Bergonzi.
