Tour de France winner Carlos Sastre will race the 2009 Giro d'Italia, according to Het Laatste Nieuws. The 33 year-old Spaniard is the third big name to announce his participation in the event after USA's Lance Armstrong and Italy's Damiano Cunego.
"For that I would give up starting in the Vuelta a España," said Sastre. Organisers RCS Sport will hold the Giro d'Italia May 9 to 31, 2009.
Carlos Sastre won the Tour in July for Team CSC. He announced in September he would leave the team to join Cervélo Test Team in 2009. Thor Hushovd and Iñigo Cuesta are joining Sastre in the newly formed team.
