Unfortunetly, that was my first thought as well.I must admit when I read the article my first thought was, "I wonder what investigation is going to be released soon with his name in it?"
was sad to read that. almost as surprised as i was to see him on the cobbles. didnt he finish a stage with a broken kneecap once?
and isnt he the one with the hot sister?
i think we all jump to, "uh-oh. what was he using," conclusions for everything now. heck, if Tiger up and retired from golf i would think they popped him. but i guess thats not that far fetched, is it.
Basso has the hot sister, who was banned from attending cycling events through 2014 for trafficking doping products. if I am not mistaken. Funny that she got a stiffer ban than a rider who gets caught. Cyclist Ivan Basso's sister banned for doping trafficking - ESPNMaybe, but you're probably thinking of Basso.
My crystal ball says that Ale Jet will be doing the Quick-Step soon...Cyclingnews now reports that Ale-Jet could continue riding in the "right circumstance."
"It seems Petacchi no longer wanted the pressure of being a team's nominated sprinter who is expected and paid to win sprints. However, he is interested in a different role.
"I remember that even a great rider like Erik Zabel led me out in the sprints when we were at Milram. I could consider doing something like that but not just for anyone. The conditions would have to be right," Petacchi explained to Gazzetta dello Sport. "
Only the moribund UCI would stand in the way of my crystal ball!My crystal ball says that Ale Jet will be doing the Quick-Step soon...
Ferrari has talent, it would be much much cooler to end his career grooming him as the next top sprinter instead of kissing Cavendish's butt.His cut of the winnings will be higher with Cavendish, and he knows he will be praised as the best leadout man in the Protour. If you can't beat him, be his leadout man.
Well there's always this rule:Only the moribund UCI would stand in the way of my crystal ball!
