Figueras ill

Italian rider Giuliano Figueras (Lampre-Caffita) is suffering from laryngitis, and cannot race Tirreno-Adriatico as he had planned. The 29 year-old, who finished second at GP Chiasso recently, has respiratory problems caused by his throat infection, already causing his abandon of Milano-Torino last Saturday. Figueras had placed 12th on general classification at Tirreno Adriatico in 2002, and eighth last year. He will take up training again as soon as possible to prepare for Milano-Sanremo, which he is scheduled to race with clear objectives.
