Cipollini confirmed for Tour de Georgia

Thursday's EuroFile: Cipo' in Georgia? CVV in Purgatory? Museeuw in retirement

Domina Vacanze announced the former World Champion Mario Cipollini will be on the starting line for the Tour de Georgia, beginning April 20th. Cipollini will be using the race as preparation for the Giro d'Italia, which begins May 8th in Genoa.

Cipollini has more Giro stage wins than anyone else, 42 in all:

"The Tour de Georgia will provide good preparation for me," Cipollini said. "The course is challenging and the race finishes ten days before the start of the Giro (which is) very good timing."

Domina Vacanze also will bring David Clinger, who won a stage of last year's Tour de Georgia.
