Quaranta to sign with Universal Caffé

Italian sprinter Ivan Quaranta will sign a deal with Continental team Universal Caffé next week. The Domina Vacanze rider, who celebrated his biggest successes from 1999 to 2001, did not get a contract in the ranks of the ProTour teams for his 12th season as a professional.

"I'll continue to race because I believe in it and I want to end my career well," the 31 year-old said. "I own a beauty centre in Treviolo; my wife manages it. I don't have to race but I want to do it for myself and those who believe in me." Quaranta has achieved 34 victories in his career to date.
