Calabria has a pretty good startlist: Nibali, Quinziato, Paolini, Sella, Visconti, Rasmussen..

Hoogerland said he was going to win la Marseillaise and so he will, Voeckler will also start.

Anyone with more info on these races?

Isnt Calabria a stage race, not a 1 day race?
You are right. I wanted to exclude the Wellington tour and only thought about Marseillaise., Should be the .1 races or whatever.

team skys european debut in marseillaise-portal, calzati, cummings, barry, augustyn, kennaugh and possoni. also think hushovd is there too, so if it comes down to a sprint my money is on him.

Giro della Provincia Regio Calabria

Stage 1

Stage 2

Stage 3

Stage 4


Hopefully these will get removed if there are any licensing issues.

Has this race been moved to February and three stages added since last year?

Calabria was a 3 stage race in February 2008 - I vaguely remember it for Cummings winning a stage and taking 2nd overall.

I think funding issues cut it to a 1 day race and a later date last year, but now its bigger than ever and back to the start of the season - must be a good year funding wise then

It ends on a small climb

Hushovd won the stage into Barcelona last year, so I don't think it would bother him too much. Unless it is a ramp that is.
The stage into Barcelona had most of the climb before the sprint itself, which was on a false flat. This one is about 2kms of 4 or 5%, including the sprint.

I thought this finishes in Marseille's football ground, in which case it definitely isn't a 2KM climb.

I wouldn't know about that, but the profile released for this year's edition ends in a 2km climb. It's certainly possible they changed it in the last month or so. Maybe they couldn't get permission to close certain roads or something.
