National Champion Lanterne Rouge

Magnus Backstedt, Swedish rider on the Liquigas team, became the national road race champion of Sweden on July 1, 2007 in a 200-km event. Backstedt was Lanterne Rouge of the 2006 Tour de France during Stage 4.

Filippo Pozzato, Lanterne Rouge of Stage 3 of the 2006 Tour, also competed in the Italian 262-km national road race championships on July 1, 2007 and finished in fifth place.

The two are teammates on Team Liquigas. Only Pozzato appears on the 2007 Liquigas Tour de France roster; apparently Backstedt will relax after winning his national championship.
