Team Lampre has incorporated the trademark green of bike sponsor Merida into its traditional bright pink and blue kit for the 2013 season, adding the color to the neck and arm bands of the jersey.
It is the 20th year of sponsorship by the company of the Galbusera family, which first sponsored the cycling team in 1991 as a second partner to Colnago. Current manager Guiseppe Saronni raced his last year with the team that year. Lampre continued as a sponsor through 1995,.
Lampre returned to the peloton in 1999 and has been in the professional peloton ever since.—————————————————————————————————–
