In 2013, the new Team Lampre-MERIDA will compete on the SCULTURA SL which has been setting benchmarks in terms of stiffness, agility and vertical compliance, thus making sure Team Lampre-MERIDA can participate in all the big races such as the Giro d’Italia, the Vuelta a Espana and the Tour de France with solid aspirations.
