Italian Tour de France runner-up Ivan Basso has revealed that his programme for next season will also include famous spring classic Milano-San Remo, usually a sprinter's race.

Basso will also participate in the Giro d'Italia before preparing for his greatest challenge in 2006, the Tour de France, just like T-Mobile's Jan Ullrich.
