The Giro d'Italia visited Austria this week with a stage finish and start in Lienz, and will do so again in 2008, going into the northern Tirol.
Josef Margreiter, director of the local organizing committee Tirol-Werbung, told sportpress.at that he had signed a contract with the Giro organization. "There are many people interested in having a Giro stage finish in their town. Kitzbühel has declared itself available, which makes me happy. But top priority goes to Innsbruck as a stage finish."
