The Russian UCI ProTeam Gazprom-RusVelo unveil team roster for the season 2022. Team Manager Dmitri Sedoun on the changes for the upcoming year:
“In order to increase the level of the team, we signed riders of various specializations from different countries. All-rounders: Giovanni Carboni, Nicola Conci and the national road race champion of Czech Republic Michael Kukrle. Climbers to strengthen the team: Kevin Rivera, Jose Diaz and the young Andrea Picсolo with the potential to become a great GC rider. We also enforced the sprint unit with Matteo Malucelli, Alessandro Fedeli and Eirik Lunder who was our team trainee and performed well in the final part of the season.
We are certain that the internal competition within the squad and exchange of experiences and skills will be a benefit for our Russian riders and for the overall performance of the team. At this moment we can say that the roster for the season 2022 is completed,” — Dmitri Sedoun.
