The Tinkoff Credit System riders will have an extra bit of motivation in Thursday's Italian One-Day Classic GP Città di Camaiore as Team Owner Oleg Tinkov will be on-hand.

The team will field Anton Mindlin, Nikolai Trusov, Alexander Serov, Sergey Klimov, Mikhail Ignatiev, Salvatore Commesso, Evgeni Petrov, Vasil Kiryienka, Ivan Rovny and Pavel Brutt in the race on the Tuscan roads.

"A lot of these men have just made a good run-up on the roads of the Brixia Tour," explained Directeur Sportif Orlando Maini. "Following the race will be our number one sponsor Oleg Tinkov and the motivation of the boys will be even stronger yet."

The riders already had their chance of racing past Tinkov's Italian villa earlier this year during stage nine of the Giro d'Italia. The stage to Lido di Camaiore, won by Danilo Napolitano (Lampre-Fondital), saw Rovny and Ignatiev attack from 15 kilometres out and then Commesso fire in the final metres but it all came to no avail.
