Milan - Mario Cipollini wants to see Lance Armstrong do more than just ride himself into shape in Saturday's Milan-San Remo race.

The retired sprinting specialist told the ANSA news agency on Thursday: "Armstrong comes to the San Remo and never shows anything special. It would be great if he attacks 100km from the finish and throws the race into chaos. It would be fun."

Last year, in one of his first races back from retirement, Armstrong finished 125th in San Remo, 8 minutes, 19 seconds behind British winner Mark Cavendish.

Before retiring in 2005, the seven-time Tour de France champion raced the Milan-San Remo six times and never won. His best result was 11th in 1996.

Cipollini won the Milan-San Remo in 2002.
