Di Luca does telethon

The first king of the ProTour, Danilo Di Luca (Liquigas-Bianchi) will take part in a charity marathon for a telethon on Saturday, December 17, in his home town of Pescara, Italy. The telethon will serve as a fund-raiser for medical research on genetic diseases.

"That will be exciting for sure," said Di Luca. "If I think that I can give my help to this charity performance involving a lot of people all over Italy, I feel as though we had just one big heart. I'm proud to take part in this marathon of generosity in my city; I'm sure my fellow citizens will distinguish themselves."

Bianchi will also contribute a team bike to the telethon.
