Recon of Muro di Sormano by Team Lampre

Video here.

The recon of tomorrow's Muro di Sormano in the Il Lombardia was done by Lampre riders Anacona, Ulissi and Niemiec (they appear L-R in the start of the video; sport director Piovani is to far left). For the recon they mounted 36x29 but will decide what to use tomorrow after the recon. This portion of the video is the Muro di Sormano part of a recon day that was 90 km and included the climbs of Eupilio, Sormano, Muro di Sormano, Ello and Villa Vergano.

The video camera is mounted on Ulissi's bike. The Muro di Sormano begins when the riders turn left off the road at 3:52 mark in the video.

Ulissi's expression at the end says it all.

Enjoy the race tomorrow! If you are in a country which is not broadcasting it go to to find a streaming feed.
