Project TJ Sport gathers in Italy for first camp

by CyclingTips

TJ Sport Consultation, the Chinese-backed outfit taking over Lampre-Merida’s WorldTour licence, held an initial gathering this week in Darfo Boario Terme, Italy for riders and staff to meet.


“The team will face the 2017 season with even more enthusiasm and with some innovation,” said team manager Giuseppe Saronni.

“It is a great pleasure that we’ll be able to start once again in Darfo Boario Terme. Thanks to Ezio Maffi and its partners, Darfo Boario Terme is a sort of second home for our team and it has become in these years a benchmark of the cycling movement. We really thank who has made this possible. We hope the team meeting will be as useful as it has always been, and that it could be a first step towards a season full of satisfactions.”

The team is not doing any riding at the camp, as it is intended for testing and meeting with technical partners.

A Chinese naming rights sponsor is yet to be announced.
