Italian Daniele Pontoni, 1997 cyclo-cross world champion, is likely to return to racing. The 40 year-old, who retired in 2005, discussed his possible return to cycling in an interview with tuttobiciweb.com. His goal would be the 2008 world championships in Treviso.

"I am regretting the decision of stopping," said the rider from Friuli, whose palmarès also include one world cup title and two Superprestige titles. "When I hung up the bike, I could have continued for another two seasons. But fortunately, there is still time to do it...I still have great ambitions."
