Mirko Celestino (Milram) will return to racing in next week's Volta a Catalunya, after a two month break due to a crash in Paris-Nice. Celestino fractured his right shoulder in the early season race, and missed all the classics.
"I'm happy to be coming back to competition, even if I am still bitter about missing the northern campaign and the Giro d'Italia," said Celestino. "I hope that my second half of the season is full of satisfaction."
Team roster: Mirko Celestino, Maarten Den Bakker, Michele Gobbi, Andriy Grivko, Maxim Iglinsky, Carlo Scognamiglio, Erik Zabel, Giovanni Visconti. D.S.: Oscar Pellicioli
