On the back of a disappointing Tour de France, Lampre-Merida hope for more successful performances in their next WorldTour performances. While the team will line up most of its Tour de France team at the Clasica San Sebastian, Damiano Cunego, Mattia Cattaneo and Przemyslaw Niemiec will target the GC at the Tour de Pologne.

 

As Rui Costa and Sacha Modolo were both forced to abandon the race, Lampre-Merida never had the Tour de France they were hoping for. Luckily, they get an immediate chance to make amends as the WorldTour continues with two races that both start this weekend.

 

The first appointment is Saturday's hilly Clasica San Sebastian where the Italian team will line up most of its Tour de France team. The course should suit climbers Jose Serpa and Kristijan Durasek and the former showed solid condition in the finale week of La Grande Boucle.

 

The pair will be joined by fellow Tour riders Nelson Oliveira and Davide Cimolai while Maximiliano Richeze and Rafal Valls will both make their comebacks after injuries forced them out of the French grand tour. The team is completed by Slovenian climber Jan Polanc and Italian fastman Elia Favilli.

 

The 7-day Tour de Pologne kicks off on Sunday and the team will line up in the race with a dual approach. For the sprints, they will rely on Sacha Modolo who is coming back from illness that took him out of the Tour, and Roberto Ferrari who will be supported by Nicollo Bonifazio. For the GC, the team will pin its hopes of Damiano Cunego, Przemyslaw Niemiec and Mattia Cattaneo who recently extended his contract with the team.

 

The line-up is completed by veterans Matteo Bono and Manuele Mori
