Two time Giro d'Italia champion Gilberto Simoni will once again take to the dirt alongside the world's best mountain bikers at the World Cup race in the Canary Islands, Spain on March 17. Simoni, who normally races on the road with the Saunier Duval team, confirmed his participation in the race, and wants to do the whole World Cup circuit this year. "Mountain biking is very motivating to me, and to race the marathon World Cup is a challenge", said Simoni. According to todociclismo.com, the 35 year-old is considering trading his slicks for knobbies for good after this year's Giro d'Italia.
