Phonak pins hopes on Guidi and Hunter

Although Fabrizio Guidi and Robert Hunter have both been on antibiotics as the result of tonsillitis and bronchitis respectively, Phonak is pinning its hopes on them for Saturday's Milan-Sanremo. "Forced breaks can often have a positive effect," said directeur-sportif René Savary.

The riders, who are eagerly awaiting the longest race of the season at 294 kilometres, also support this Savary's comments. As well as Guidi and Hunter, Martin Elmiger and Miguel Angel Perdiguero intend to make a good showing at the race.
