Lampre set for name change

Lampre-ISD will be known as Lampre-Merida from next season until 2015.

Taiwanese manufacturer Merida is moving from a background in mountain biking to road racing.

The bikes will be "tailor made" for the spring classics while "particularly aerodynamic models for long escapes and building a lead-out train for a sprinter are going to be presented throughout the next year".
