Report:

Italian Francesco Casagrande won the Tour de Suisse after the 10th Stage was won by a Maurizio De Pasquale and it was his first victory since serving 9 months out of the sport courtesy of a positive drugs test. He came back to racing 3 weeks before the start of the Tour de Suisse and was very strong in the final stages of the race to beat the early leader Laurent Jalabert by 1.04, after taking the leader's jersey after Stage 9.

The 29-year old Itallian said this victory was a "personal revenge" for the suspension imposed on him last September by the Italian Cycling Federation. He was tested positive twice with high levels of testosterone. The UCI judged the 6 months suspension as being inadequate and extended it by a further 3 months. Casagrande said after winning the Tour de Suisse: "This victory is a personal victory after being out of racing for several months. I have made a lot of sacrifices to come-back. But it is bad that I am not going to be able to race the Tour de France." Casagrande belongs to the Vini Caldirola team which was arbitrarily excluded by the organisers of the Tour last week following the expulsion of Ukrainian Sergue´ Honchar after stage 3 of the Tour de Suisse.
