Stefano Garzelli (Liquigas) will not line up in Seraing this Saturday to start the Giro d'Italia, which he won in the year 2000. Instead, the Italian climber who just took German 1.HC race Rund um den Henninger Turm in a bunch sprint (!) will take a short break from racing throughout May, then come back at the Tour of Luxembourg, taking place from May 31-June 4. In doing this, Garzelli is working towards a peak of shape for the Tour de France in July. He will be testing his qualities for the French Grand Tour at the Tour de Suisse and the Italian Road Championships beforehand.
