Neo-pro Canuti aims big

The only new cyclists on the CSF Group - Navigare team for 2008 are neo-pros, one of which is Federico Canuti, a climber who'd like to make his mark in a Grand Tour or Classic.

"I think I'm a good climber," said Canuti, "and my greatest dream would be to win the Giro d'Italia. But I have to admit that I'm also captivated by Milan-Sanremo. Winning there would be wonderful. However, I'm aware that initially it will be very hard, because when you switch from youth category to pro, it's a big change, beginning with race length."
