“The season for the team began very early, but I preferred to posticipate the first race in order to plan a longer program of tranings - Cunego explained - Following Michele Bartoli’s indication, I performed very good trainings, so I’m ready to taste again the feelings of being in the bunch”.
The team will be directed by Piovani and Maini, with the support by mechanics Baron, Bortoluzzo, Carminati and Pengo, masseurs Bertolone, Bolzonaro, Del Gallo and Della Torre and doctor Pollastri.
