Since yesterday, Androni Giocattoli-Venezuela have been gathered for their first team meeting in Cesenatico where they have announced their 18-rider roster. The latest news are the signing of Simone Stortoni and renewals of Marco Bandiera and Tiziano Dall'Antonia.


The latest addition is Simone Stortoni (1985) who rode for Amore & Vita in 2014 and was with Lampre-Farnese Vini (2012-2013) and Colnago-CSF (2009-2011) earlier in his career. Furthermore, Marco Bandiera and Tiziano Dall'Antonia will continue with Gianni Savio's team that will also be joined by two young Venezuelans after the renewal of the agreement with the National Federation of the South American country.


Kuota is the new bike sponsor while Giovanni Ellena, Roberto Miodini and Gianpaolo Cheula will join Savio in the technical staff. As in past years, the first race will be the Tour de San Luis in Argentina.


Oscar Gatto and Davide Appollonio, coming down from the WorldTour, and Franco Pellizotti will be the three leaders and will be joined by youngster Marco Benfatto, Carlos Gimenez and Alberto Nardin.


2015 team:
New riders (8): Oscar Gatto (Cannondale), Davide Appollonio (AG2R La Mondiale), John Kronborg Ebsen (CCN Cycling Team), Serghei Ţvetcov (Jelly Belly), Marco Benfatto (Continental Astana), Simone Stortoni (Amore & Vita), Carlos Gimenez and Alberto Nardin.

Riders to continue with the team (10): Franco Pellizotti, Andrea Zordan, Gianfranco Zilioli, Alessio Taliani, Marco Bandiera, Tiziano Dall'Antonia, Emanuele Sella, Carlos Gálviz, Yonder Godoy and Jackson Rodriguez.


In 2014 the team was its usual aggressive self but only managed to win five races: stages of the Tour de Langkawi, Tour of Azerbaijan and Tour of Venezuela (Kenny Van Hummel), another one in Venezuela (Carlos Galviz) and the final stage in the Tour du Limousin (Manuel Belletti).
