Petacchi confirms: won't start '06 Tour
Team Milram's Alessandro Petacchi won't start the Tour de France, as he faces surgery for a fractured kneecap.
Petacchi injured his knee yesterday in a fall during Stage 3 of the Giro d'Italia.
"Even If I recover from surgery, I will never have time to get fit," Petacchi told French sports daily L'Equipe on Tuesday of his prospects of lining up for the first stage of the Tour de France on July 1.
