Simoni and Saeco sign two-year extension

Giro d’Italia winner Gilberto Simoni has signed a two-year extension to his contract with Saeco until 2005, his team announced in Bordeaux on Thursday. The 31-year-old Italian has twice won the Giro (2001 and 2003) but has encountered a somewhat more challenging Tour de France campaign this year. Simoni, after struggling through the Alps and Pyrenean stages, finally got his act together to win the 14th stage to Loudenvielle on Sunday. His teammate Dario Pieri, who finished second in this year's Paris-Roubaix one-day classic, also signed a new two-year deal.Copyright AFP2003
