Cunego narrows search, Gianetti's Geox on standby

Amstel Gold Race 2008 Damiano Cunego

Italian Damiano Cunego is narrowing his search for a new team and may decide before the end of the month. The next week will be important, as he will talk with several interested teams, including current team Lampre.

Lampre-Farnese Vini team manager, Giuseppe Saronni, has heard the rumours that Cunego will be leaving, including Friday's news that Cunego signed with Swiss Mauro Gianetti. Regardless of the rumours and the arrival of Michele Scarponi, Saronni will propose to Cunego a contract this week.
