Italian Tour de France runner-up Ivan Basso has revealed that his programme for next season will also include famous spring classic Milano-San Remo, usually a sprinter's race. "I have decided to include Milano-San Remo in my programme after hearing about the route changes," the CSC rider said on Wednesday. "The new climb in the race finale suits my capabilities perfectly."

Basso will also participate in the Giro d'Italia before preparing for his greatest challenge in 2006, the Tour de France, just like T-Mobile's Jan Ullrich.
