Petacchi back on pedals

Eurosport | Petacchi back on bike - Cycling - Eurosport

Italy's finest sprinter is back in training, and looking forward to 2007.

Alessandro Petacchi, who missed the 2006 Tour while recovering from a knee injury sustained in the Giro d'Italia, then broke his hand during the Vuelta a España when he punched the team bus.

Where many riders might consider that sequence and decide to stay away from the Grand Tours for a while, Petacchi says his 2007 goal is stage wins in each GT (a feat he accomplished in 2003) and a repeat of his 2005 win at Milan-San Remo.
