After deciding that it wasn't in his best interests for Floyd Landis to ride the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France, the Phonak team is pinning its Giro general classification hopes on 31-year-old Colombian Victor Hugo Peña. Peña rode last week's Tour de Romandie as preparation for the Giro, finishing 54th overall, but Phonak team manager believes his man is capable of a top 10 finish at the Giro.

Peña will be supported by Martin Elmiger, Fabrizio Guidi, José Enriqué Gutierrez, Patrik McCarty, Axel Merckx, Gregory Rast, Johann Tschopp, and Steve Zampieri. The squad will be directed by John Lelangue, Juan Fernandez, and Adriano Baffi.
