Danilo Di Luca has asked the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) to move up the date of his hearing from April 1, so that he will be able to ride the Settimana Ciclistica Lombarda which starts on that date. The hearing is to consider a two-year ban resulting from abnormal test results from the 2006 Giro d'Italia.

Di Luca also served a three-month suspension over the winter for his involvement in the "Oil for Drugs" affair.

The 2007 Giro d'Italia winner signed a one-year contract with Team LPR this season, and has already appeared at races for the team a few times.
