Liquigas is close to finalizing its line-up for next season, bringing on nine new riders for 2010.
The top Italian ProTour team has added some young talent to its roster of established veterans, still anchored by the likes of Ivan Basso, Daniele Bennati, Roman Kreuziger, Vicenzo Nibali and Pranco Pellizotti.
The top new names include Croatian Robert Kiserlovski and Italian neo-pro Elia Viviani, young guns who will help fill out the Liquigas squad for what will be an ambitious and highly anticipated season. Franco Bellotti moves over from the Barloworld team.
The team will hold its first meeting November 27 at the Passo San Pelligrino in northern Italy to plan for the upcoming campaign.
