Bronzini and Vzesnaiuskaite at head of affairs
Less than two months before the beginning of their 2006 campaign, Team FRW has released its final line-up. Starting in Geelong, Australia, firstly for the Tour, then for the World Cup which follows, the team will be focussing upon both Tours and World Cup races. Sprinter, Giorgia Bronzini will be aiming for wins with what Team FRW calls her 'explosive sprint' and which gained her 12 wins in 2005. For the World Cup and one day races, the team will be looking for performances from Modesta Vzesniauskaite, who they identify as a rider who will reach new heights in 2006.
Also important in the gameplan, is Martina Armor, who is in her fourth year with the team. She comes from Romagna and is noted as one of the "veterans" of the squad. Her 'palmeres' includes a Junior World Championships medal from 1996 and an Italian title from 1997. In 2005, she took third place in a stage of the Gracia Tour and a long list of placing.
Experience and enthusiasm are characteristics of Kettj Manfrin, who rides both road and track and who was fifth in the Italian 500m TT and sixth in the Points Race in 2005. Another rider who will be mixing road and track is Laura Pisaneschi. In 2003, she took the Points Race and in 2004, a bronze medal in the TT. Nina Ovcharenco is a Ukrainian who made her debut in Italy in 2004.
