UCI Year in Review - Fines for Cipollini, Petacchi

Yahoo! Sport | Cipollini and Petacchi handed festive fines

The two sprinters were fined for separate incidents. Cipollini's fine of 3,000 Swiss francs was for an incident in April at Ghent-Wevelgem, when he threw water bottles at a race motorcycle.

Petacchi was fined 200 Swiss francs for his part in a dustup at the line of Stage 9 of the Giro. Petacchi and Latvia's Andris Naudusz got into a shoving match while trying to get on Cipollini's wheel for a lead-out to the finish line. Naudusz, who was disqualified from the stage, has now also been fined 3,000 Swiss francs for the altercation.
