  1. I would like to see a competitive Damiano Cunego for the GC but I'm not sure this is the team to help him to that end. He didn't seem have a lot of team support in the Tour de Suisse and that might have made the difference. Is this team any better suited to support Damiano or is it for Alessandro and the Green Jersey? It will be interesting and fun to see how it turns out for Cunego and the rest of the Lampre Team in this years Tour.
