Firenze-Pistoia marks last Italian race of 2007

The 21st Firenze-Pistoia time trial will mark the end of the 2007 Italian road racing season. The 35.5-kilometre test will be run tomorrow from the Tuscan capital, finishing in the city to the west that is home to many professional cyclists, such as Vincenzo Nibali, originally from Sicily. Last year's event was cancelled due to organization problems.

Amongst the 25 riders lining-up will be seven of the riders that formed the Italian team at the World Championships last month in Stuttgart. Other than two-time World Champions Paolo Bettini, there will be his Quick.Step team-mates Andrea Tonti and Giovanni Visconti, Alessandro Ballan of Lampre-Fondital, Filippo Pozzato and Nibali (Liquigas), and Alessandro Bertolini (Serramenti PVC Diquigiovanni-Selle Italia).
