Sapa joins Lampre

Polish rider Marcin Sapa will join the Italian Lampre squad under a one-year contract, the team announced Friday. The 32-year-old comes from the DHL - Author squad, and came recommended after a strong performance in the Tour of Poland.

The Polish national road race champion, Sapa took the overall sprint classification in his national Tour. "We noticed Marcin during the last Tour of Poland," Lampre's manager Giuseppe Saronni said. "Sapa tried several breakaway attempts and it was not so easy for the bunch to chase him. Taking the advice of the Tour of Poland organizer, we choose Sapa in order to continue the tradition of very good Polish cyclists in the blue and fuchsia, who will allow the Lampre company to obtain high visibility in Poland."

A swimmer in her younger days, Laura made the change to cycling later in life, but was immediately swept up by a huge passion for the sport. Riding for fitness quickly gave way to the competitive urge, and a decade of racing later she can look back on a number of high profile races and say with confidence, "I started". While her racing days are over for the most part, she continues to dabble in cyclo-cross and competing against fellow pathletes on the greenways of Raleigh, North Carolina.
