Lance Armstrong has told race organisers that he will compete in this year's Giro d'Italia, between May 9-31.

The announcement removed doubts that the seven-time Tour de France champion, who is currently training in Colorado, would miss the race after having surgery to fix his broken right collarbone last month.

"The recovery has been going well and the plan is to be there," Armstrong's spokesman Mark Higgins said.

It will mark the first time Armstrong races in the Italian classic, considered cycling's second most important race after the Tour.
