This Lampre sprinter has already won three races this season (won again today in Settimana Bartoli-Coppi) and finished second three other times this season. From photos the guy has a double-chin and looks like he weighs 200 pounds on the bike, but the Lampre-Fondital website has him at 77 kilos (about 170 pounds). Anybody know the skinny on this guy? Is this his first pro season?

Brief write up about him in the Cyclingnews.com coverage of today's stage. First season with a ProTour outfit, but won the same stage last year while riding for LPR, the D2 team.

Judging from his headtube and seat height, I'd guess he's 5'9". 170 lbs at 5'9" is pretty substantial for a bike rider.
