Brixia Tour 2005

The fifth edition of the Brixia Tour "G.P. San Michele Prefabbricati" (July 22-24) was launched yesterday. The short but sharp Italian race, ranked 2.1 in the UCI Europe Tour, is expected to contain a wealth of talent as riders who are not taking part in the Tour de France return to racing after a July break.

Notably, the Brixia Tour should see the return to racing of Damiano Cunego (Lampre-Caffita), provided the 2004 Giro winner has recovered from his current problem with mononucleosis. Cunego's team-mate Gilberto Simoni will also ride, setting up a 'return match' with Giro revelation Venezuelan José Rujano (Colombia - Selle Italia).
