Finally, this week, following discussion with Director Sportif, Bjarne Riis, Italian leader Ivan Basso announced that his intention was to ride the 2006 Giro d?Italia.   The team believes that Basso is able to achieve a Giro ? Tour double.

Head of the Giro organisation, Angelo Zomegnan, expressed his delight at the news from the first CSC training camp.   "I can only be very satisfied about Bjarne Riis' and Team CSC's decision to send its leader Ivan Basso to the 2006 Giro d'Italia.   His presence will add greatly to the race and contribute to its high ranking. This announcement makes us proud in a special way, because it further increases the already great field of prestigious candidates to the maglia
rosa
, be they Italian or foreign. We will wait for all of them in Li?ge
."
