Everything is ready in Team LAMPRE-MERIDA for the start of the Tour de France 2015 (in photo Bettini, the team at the official presentation).
In the opening individual time trial, 13,8 km in Utrecht, the first cyclists from the team of the sport directors Mauduit and Pedrazzini to start won’t wear the blue-fuchsia-green colors. At 14,06 Nelson Oliveira will start his Tour de France wearing the speedsuit manifactured by Champion System in the colors of the Portuguese time trial champion.
This is the complete time schedule of LAMPRE-MERIDA’s riders, who’ll cover the course on their Merida Warp TT:
– 14,06: Oliveira
– 14,28: Valls
– 14,50: Bono
– 15,12: Durasek
– 15,34: Cimolai
– 15,56: Serpa
– 16,18: Pozzato
– 16,40: Plaza
– 17,02: Rui Costa
For the riders, considering the time schedule and the unusual organization of the day, one important element will be the nutrition.
LAMPRE-MERIDA will rely on the past Young Endurance Balance (more info here), which grants the necessary and balanced quantity of carbohydrates and proteins.
Davide Cimolai will play the double role of cyclist and cameraman: while he will be pedaling, a GoPro camera fixed on the handlebar of his bike will shoot images of the time trial. This is possible thanks to the partnership that Velon teams (more info here) and ASO signed with GoPro.
Stay tuned on LAMPRE-MERIDA’s social network accounts to watch the images.
