Having just completed the 2008 world titles in Varese, another Italian city has signalled its intention to host the world championships within the next five years.

Headed up by former pro Michele Bartoli, Florence's bid would mean it's the third Italian city to host the titles in nine years if it is successful. "To hold the world championships in Florence will be a fantastic project, the route would be a celebration of cycling," said Bartoli.

The next three editions of the world titles will be held in Mendrisio, Switzerland; Melbourne, Australia and Copenhagen, Denmark.
