Milan-Sanremo on Petacchi's Mind

Milan-Sanremo is still far off, one and a half months remain for the Spring classic, but the race was already on the mind of Alessandro Petacchi at today's XV edition of the G.P. Costa degli Etrusch.

After winning his third sprint of this season today Ale Jet said, "The new finish of Milan-Sanremo does not bother me. Sure, I would have preferred a finish similar to when I won (ed. note: 2005). As always it will be a course where you will have to give everything. I hope the entire team will be in good condition so that it will permit me to be near the front of the group on all the climbs. My condition is already good, and I feel good when the roads goes up."

  1. Ale-Jet's looking lean already this year, must be hoping to get over the climbs with the leaders though in the twilight of his career -- can he get the best of young guys like Cavendish?
