Tuscany bids for 2008 World's

The community of Peccoli (Lucca) in the well known Italian region of Tuscany will present its bid to host the 2008 World Road Championships at a press conference in Florence next Tuesday, January 11. Although the bid is focused on 2008, the region is willing to accommodate a three year window in order to host the World's.

Vice president of the UCI, Agostino Omini, will look at the proposed courses in Peccoli next Monday, while the honorary president of the FCI Alfredo Martini and national technical director Franco Ballerini will also be present.
