2009 World's in Mendrisio

After further investigation of the planned racing route, the UCI director's committee has officially announced the 2009 Road World Championships to take place in the Swiss town of Mendrisio located near the Italian border, between the lakes Como and Lugano. Mendrisio has already welcomed the World's in 1971, when Belgian legend Eddy Merckx took the rainbow-striped jersey. The next four of five World's venues are now known: Madrid, Spain in 2005, Salzburg, Austria in 2006, Stuttgart, Germany in 2007 and Mendrisio, Switzerland in 2009.
