The organisers of the Brixia Tour in Italy have announced that the UCI has granted the race one more race day, making the event held in Lombardy a grow from three to four days in July 2006. The sixth edition of the 2.1 rated race will thus be held from July 20-23 next season.
"The decision of the UCI is worth a lot to us," said a happy Team Brixia organiser Giuseppe Bresciani. "Our race gets bigger year after year. It needs a greater amount of engagement but also offers our partners better and better opportunities." The Brixia 2006 parcours is not yet decided, the only official itinerary detail being the start of the first stage in Concesio.
