Lampre-Merida will line up all their Italian stars for this week's trio of Italian one-day races. Damiano Cunego and Diego Ulissi will spearhead them in tomorrow's GP Camaiore and they will be joined by Filippo Pozzato for Saturday's Strade Bianche while Pozzato and Sacha Modolo will be the leaders in Sunday's Roma Maxima.

 

Lampre-Merida will use all the Italian stars in this weeks three one-day races in their native Italy and they will all get a chance to shine.

 

It all kicks off in tomorrow's GP Camaiore whose hilly course suits the climbers. Hence, the team will be led by DIego Ulissi and Damiano Cunego who both showed great condition in Saunday's GP Lugano and they will be joined by climbers Przemyslaw Niemiec and Winner Anacona, with the latter making his European season debut. Youngsters Jan Polanc and Luca Wackermann are also expected to shine.

 

On Saturday, it is time for the famous gravel roads of the Strade Bianche and again Ulissi and Cunego will be the leaders. They will be joined by Filippo Pozzato who will be keen to see the effects of his recent training at altitude while Manuele Mori and Luca Dodi will be looking for early breakaways.

 

On Sunday, the team will do the Roma Maxima where Pozzato finished 2nd in last year's edition. The Italian is back in 2014 but as the race often comes down to a reduced sprint in the centre of Rome, the team have brought in their in-form sprinter Sacha Modolo who will have plenty of lead-out riders to support him as Maximilano Richeze, Davide Cimolai, Andrea Palini, and Niccolo Bonifazio will all be in attendance.
