Visconti back on top

Italian Giovanni Visconti took victory number one for the season Friday in Ljubljana, Slovenia. He accelerated ahead of Slovenians Grega Bole (Amica Chips-Knauf) and Jure Kocjan (CarmioOro - A-Style) at the end of Tour de Slovénie stage two.

Team ISD positioned Visconti for the final 1000 metres of 10-percent gradient. Teammate Alessandro Proni was the last to work and finished with 400 metres remaining. Italy's Marco Bandiera (Lampre-NGC) attacked immediately, but Visconti used Bole to launch for his win.

Visconti is preparing for a repeat of his 2007 Italian Championship win next weekend in Imola.

Dane Jacob Fuglsang (Saxo Bank) continues to lead the Tour de Slovénie, which continues tomorrow with a stage to Kravavec. The race ends Sunday with a stage from Sent Jerne to Novo Mesto.
