After a very good start to the season, culminating in his victory in the Settimana Internazionale Coppi & Bartali, Franco Pellizotti will come back racing in the Tour de Suisse. The Liquigas-Bianchi rider has taken a break since Liège-Bastogne-Liège, and described himself as satisfied with his condition.

"I'm not at my best yet, but I feel my shape is getting better day by day," he said. "Unfortunately, an intestinal virus forced me to take a short break two weeks ago. However, I will be competitive in the Tour de Suisse, the Italian Championships and above all the Tour de France."

Besides the "Dolphin of Bibione", in the Tour de Suisse, Liquigas-Bianchi will include Michael Albasini, Kjell Carlström, Daniele Colli, Matej Mugerli, Luciano Pagliarini, Charly Wegelius and Marco Zanotti. The team will be directed by Stefano Zanatta and Mario Scirea.
