Defending Brixia Tour champion Davide Rebellin will be leading Team Gerolsteiner in the event this week, but more attention will likely be paid to the squad's other Italian. Andrea Moletta will make his return to racing after recovering from serious injuries incurred in March in Milano-SanRemo.
As Cyclingnewsreported exclusively, the 28 year-old has recovered from his broken thigh and subsequent surgery. At the time of his accident, he told team manager Hans Michael Holczer that he would return to racing this season.
The race runs from Thursday to Sunday and coves 678 km across northern Italy.
Gerolsteiner in Brixia: Johannes Fröhlinger, Oscar Gatto, Tim Klinger, Andrea Moletta, Davide Rebellin, Marcel Strauss, Beat Zberg, and Markus Zberg.
