Michael Rasmussen Giro 2008

Italian team Centri della Calzatura has revealed that Denmark's Michael Rasmussen will ride for them in 2010 as they plan to step up to Professional Continental status and try and secure a place in major races.

Centri della Calzatura is a chain of three shoe shops based in Tuscany and this year sponsored a small Continental team but with little success. Rasmussen raced for the first time in a criterium in July after completing a two-year ban from competition and recently competed in the Vuelta a Chihuahua in Mexico, where he won the opening prologue.
