Quaranta chooses love and life: Amore & Vita

Ivan Quaranta will make the switch this winter from Universal Caffè-CB Immobiliare to Amore & Vita-McDonald's. The 32 year-old Italian from Crema will join the established team of Toscano Ivano Fanini, racing mostly Italian races.

"I have the desire to redeem myself, to demonstrate that I am still able to do something good," said Il Ghepardo to "I know words don't mean much and I want to put myself immediately to work. The season's first race? In Donoratico [GP Etruschi], this is sure."

Early in Quaranta's career he was tipped to be one of Italy's next big sprinters, but the kick faded fast from his legs. Nevertheless, he has spent one day in the Maglia Rosa and sprinted to victory six times in the Giro d'Italia.
