Katusha season start

October 28, 2009 at 12:11 2 comments

Russia’s team Katusha is in Desenzano, Italy, this week for an informal meeting ahead of the 2010 season. It is a chance for the new riders and staff to get to know one another, according to Director Sportif Serge Parsani

“The riders are not even going out on rides,” Parsani told us. “For example, the riders played a game of football yesterday.”

The complete 2010 team is in Desenzano, along Lago di Garda, including new signees Kim Kirchen and Joaquím Rodríguez.

“We are taking photos for next year, performing tests, talking about next year’s race schedules and handing out clothing,” continued Parsani.

The camp started Monday and ends tomorrow.

Katusha will begin its 2010 season at the Tour Down Under 2010, January 19 to 24. It will meet again for another training camp, likely in southern Italy, at the start of the year.

    I’m planning to produce a documentary on Le Tour de France, focusing on 3 riders in their first attempt at the race. If a member of your team is interested in participating the documentary, please let me know. I would compensate your team with a portion of the revenue from the royalties from theatrical distribution, TV broadcast and DVD sales, to be negotiated. I hope to hear from you. Thank you.
