2007 Team rosters

Team DilÓ Guerciotti Cogeas

A new women's Elite team has been created in Italy, enriching the peloton with an international mix of riders. Stefano Della Santa of Lucca, previously a director sportif with other teams, will direct a squadra of 12 women. Della Santa will receive managerial assistance from Lombardia duo Massimiliano Bonanomi and Ruben Contreras, who have talents in directing teams in every type of race.

The team's two top-guns, Spaniard Marta Vilajosana Andreu and American Aimee Vasse, will be flanked by a hard-hitting talented crew of riders, like Danes Maya Adamsen and Mette Fischer Andreasen, all-round Russian Oxana Kostenko, Italian Emanuela Azzini and Salvadoran Evelyn Garcia. But there will also be two neo-pros on the team who will learn from the elders; Dane Maria Helena Bornak and Italian Alice Colombo.

DilÓ Guerciotti Cogeas will have its calendar based around world cup races; the most important events being European stage races and the all major Italian races.
