Today in Ticino was another sensational win for Italian-Russian squad Tinkoff Credit Systems; Pavel Brutt nabbed Davide Rebellin (Gerolsteiner) and Luca Mazzanti (Ceramica Panaria-Navigare) on the line in the downtown Chiasso town after 172.9 kilometres of racing. It was a great confirmation for the 25 year-old Russian, ahead of a top-flight Italian, Tin-Tin Rebellin, and to his team for having faith in his abilities.

"Yes, it was a beautiful victory and I have three good reasons to say thanks," said Brutt to "The first is to the team, to my teammates, who have really been great. The second is to Oleg Tinkov, who has believed in me, who has given me space in this important team. The last is thanks to Orlando Maini, Claudio Cozzi and Dmitri Konyshev, the Director Sportifs of Tinkoff, who have given me great guidance. Well, we are really a great team!"

The win came out of an eight-man escape, which also included his teammate Evgeni Petrov, finishing fifth. But the team did have a bit of bad luck with Sergey Klimov. The 27 year-old was tangled up in a crash, then taken to the hospital in Mendrisio where doctors determined that he had a broken left collarbone.
