Gilberto Simoni will compete in the upcoming Tour de Suisse. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the winner of the Giro d'Italia's Monte Zoncolan stage will take part in the nine-day stage race that departs June 24th from Bern. The 35 year-old rider from Trento will seek to put his Giro-form to good use.

The last Italian to win the Tour de Suisse was Francesco Casagrande; he took the 1999 Tour over Laurent Jalabert and Simoni.
