On Wednesday, Tinkoff Credit Systems general manager Stefano Feltrin confirmed the team's next camp, to be held from January 8 to 24 in Marina di Grosseto, Tuscany. The Italian-Russian squad concluded its first team camp last December, where the staff and 18 riders, including Tyler Hamilton and Salvatore Commesso, gathered in Italy's Rivera Romagnola, in Riccione.

"Following training in Grosseto, we will travel to Roma for the presentation," said Feltrin to Cyclingnews of the team's presentation on January 23.

The team's financial backer, Russian Oleg Tinkov, is expected to join the team again this month in Tuscany, where he owns a home. As in December, the avid cyclist will likely join the riders on their training rides.

Tinkoff Credit Systems will make its 2007 debut in Malaysia, on February 2 at the Tour de Langkawi. The team has yet to confirm the roster for the Asian race.

Riders: Tyler Hamilton (USA), Elio Aggiano (Ita), Pavel Brutt (Rus), Ilya Chernetsky (Rus), Salvatore Commesso (Ita), Daniele Contrini (Ita), Danilo Hondo (Ger), Sergey Klimov (Rus), Mikhail Ignatiev (Rus), Ruggero Marzoli (Ita), Anton Mindlin (Rus), Evgeni Petrov (Rus), Ivan Rovny (Rus), Alexander Serov (Rus), Ricardo Serrano (Spa), Nikolai Trussov (Rus), Steffen Weigold (Ger) and Vasil Kiryienka (Blr)

Team Manager: Omar Piscina
