Corti denies Basso dealings

In Italy and abroad there have been hints that Claudio Corti is interested in having 2006 Giro di Italia winner, Ivan Basso, as part of his Barloworld team. The 30 year-old Italian from Varese was suspended on June 15 for his association with Operación Puerto; he will be able to return to racing October 24 – in time for the Japan Cup, October 28. However, the Team Manager of Barloworld noted that he is not focused on Basso, but on the 2008 racing season and the 2009 sponsorship negotiations.
