Damiano Cunego has signed a new two-year contract with Lampre-ISD.
The 28-year-old Italian has been with the Lampre team for six years but there was speculation that he could move on and was linked with possible moves to Team Sky, Garmin and Team Geox.
But the 2004 Giro champion has opted to sign a new deal with Lampre who will join forces with Ukrainian metallurgical company ISD next year to form a joint ProTour team.
"This is a very important step in the development of the team," team manager Giuseppe Saronni commented.
"There's a full belief that Cunego is a top rider in world cycling and we're working in order to give him all the best technical and professional resources."
