Marvulli, Hayles headline Australian madison event

Former madison world champions Franco Marvulli and Rob Hayles will headline the 2009 Australian Madison Championship, to be contested on February 28 at Melbourne's DISC velodrome. Marvulli, a two-time world champion in both the madison and scratch race, will partner Germany's Leif Lampater, a former winner of the madison at the UCI Track World Cup series in 2005.

The riders are headed for Australia having wrapped up the European six-day series at the Lotto 6 - Daagse last weekend. Lampater paired with Erik Zabel in January to successfully defend their title at the Six Days of Bremen, with Marvulli and partner finishing in second place.
