After some time off competition, a second place at the Memorial Pantani - Trofeo Mercatone Uno marked a good first race back for Daniel Cunego (Lampre). The Italian finished behind winner Enrico Rossi (NGC Medical-OTC Industria Porte), who attacked after 25 kilometres and was able to reach the finish for a solo win despite bad weather conditions.

When the route became tougher, a chase group of 11 riders, including Cunego, preceded the main bunch, but they could not catch Rossi. Cunego crossed the finish line in second position, preceding Ukrainian Ruslan Pidgornyy (LPR Brakes) and Italian Leonardo Bertagnolli (Liquigas).
