Francesco Ginanni fired back Saturday in Lugano, Switzerland, with another important win in the GP Insubria only seven days after he triumphed in the Trofeo Laigueglia. The 23-year-old Diquigiovanni-Androni rider sprinted clear of Enrico Rossi (Ceramica Flaminia-Bossini Docce) and Samuel Dumoulin (Cofidis) after 177 kilometres of racing.

He dedicated his win to the former director of the Italian sports newspaper, La Gazzetta dello Sport. "This win is dedicated to Candido Cannavò because he loved cycling," said Gianni.

Team Diquigiovanni controlled Insubria as it did in Laigueglia, specifically with Olympic silver medallist Davide Rebellin. Ginanni's teammate broke up the group in the final four kilometres on a climb and then led out Ginanni in the final 500 metres.

Ginanni is a hot favourite for the Milano-Sanremo, March 21, thanks to his recent wins. The Italian from Pistoia has five race wins in the last seven months. He won the Giro del Veneto, Tre Valli Varesine and GP Carnaghese all in August 2008.

Diquigiovanni worked hard for the Saturday's race win. The team pulled back an early three-man escape with David Loosli (Lampre-NGC), Ronny Scholz (Milram) and Fredrik Kessiakoff (Fuji-Servetto). The move lasted for 150 kilometres, at one point it had 7:45 over the main group.

The GP Insubria takes the place of the GP Chiasso, last held in 2007. (GB)
