What's Cool In Road Cycling

LAMPRE-MERIDA is ready for the 1st edition of the race in UAE

Team LAMPRE-MERIDA is going to participate in the first edition of Abu Dhabi Tour.

The team manager and the sport directors Marzano and Scirea reached the United Arab Emirates together with the six riders who’ll race on the road of Abu Dhabi: Davide Cimolai, Mario Costa, Sacha Modolo, Manuele Mori, Diego Ulissi and Xu Gang.
In the operative staff there will be the doctor Guardascione, the masseurs Lima and Negri and the mechanics Pengo and Romanò.

This is the schedule of the four stages of the Abu Dhabi Tour:
– 1st stage, Thursday 8 October: Qasr Al Sarab-Madinat Zayed
– 2nd stage, Friday 9 October: Yas Marina-Marina Island
– 3rd stage, Saturday 10 October: Al Ain-Jebel Hafeet
– 4th stage, Sunday 11 October: Yas Marina Circuit

Three stages will be suitable for the sprinters and Modolo and Cimolai will try to honor the blue-fuchsia-green level of speed; the 3rd stage will be the key stage for the overall classification: for the summit arrival of Jebel Hafeet, at the end of a 11 km climb, LAMPRE-MERIDA will rely on Ulissi.
Mario Costa, Manuele Mori and Xu Gang (the Chinese rider attended the official press conference of the race, with the most important cyclists in the world – photo) will support the captains and will try to join the breakaways.

Soon, at the website www.teamlampremerida.com and on the team’s social network account all the most interesting pictures of the first day of the team in Abu Dhabi will be published.
