Return to career roots for Italian

Marzio Bruseghin will move to Caisse d'Epargne at the end of the season, it was announced on Friday. It will be a return to familiar surroundings for Bruseghin, who rode for the squad's predecessor, Ibanesto, for three years until 2002.

La Gazetta Dello Sport reports that the Italian has signed a two-year contract with the Spanish registered squad worth 370,000 euro per year.

His move to Caisse d'Epargne will bring to an end six years of employment with Italian teams. Bruseghin rode for Fassa Bortolo for three seasons before he joined his current squad, Lampre-NGC, in 2006.

Bruseghin has won two stages of the Giro d'Italia and became Italian national time trial champion in 2006. Last year he rode all three Grand Tours and finished third on general classification at the Giro d'Italia.
