Fränk Schleck will lead RADIOSHACK NISSAN TREK Giro d'Italia team

Fränk Schleck will start next Saturday in the Tour of Italy (May 5-27). The number three finisher in last year’s Tour de France will lead the nine-man squad during the three weeks through Denmark and Italy. Schleck, initially not slated to ride the race, replaces Jakob Fuglsang, suffering from an inflammation of the articular capsule and ligament of the left knee.

“My season was directed at peaking in the Tour”, said Fränk Schleck. “but when you think about it, this situation creates opportunities. For sure, I will come to the start with a different preparation than the other GC riders, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. My condition is not so bad and it can only grow the coming weeks. The Tour of Italy is one of the big monuments of cycling as well, so it is at least a big challenge for me.”
