Rainbow jersey a gift to the team

Team LPR rider Mauro Santambrogio is happy to be competing in Saturday's U23 road race in Madrid, but merely being there is not enough - the chance of a rainbow jersey beckons. The talented young rider who this year has won the Giro del Lago Maggiore, taken third in the Giro del Mendrisiotto and participated in the 2005 Mediterranean Games believes that a worlds title would be a great gift to LPR before his departure at the end of the season. Santambrogio will join forces with Alberto Curtolo, Tiziano Dall'Antonia, Luigi Sestili and Rino Zampilli under the direction of coach Antonio Fusi as the Italian squad, like their senior counterparts, go into the U23 race as one of the favourites.
