Liquigas to Paris-Tours

Liquigas-Bianchi has announced its roster for the second-to-last 2005 ProTour race, Paris-Tours on Sunday. The first winner of the newly established racing calendar Danilo Di Luca will captain the squad. However, the "Killer" denies that he has any personal ambitions at the event: "I have already won the Pro Tour," he said. " So I think it is right to make room for my teammates who regard the finish in Tours as suitable for them. I will save my remaining energy for Saturday 15, the Giro di Lombardia."

Marco Zanotti, who has just won the Circuit Franco-Belge, Magnus Bäckstedt and Enrico Gasparotto are therefore free to take their chances.
