Tirreno-Adriatico: Petacchi Finally Nabs One
Italy's top sprinter, Alessandro Petacchi (Team Milram), grabbed a stage victory in today's final stage of Tirreno-Adriatico. His teammate, Germany's Erik Zabel (himself a good sprinter) led him out for the win. It's a great boost going into Petacchi's next target, Milano-Sanremo, this coming Sunday. No one threatened the lead of young Thomas Dekker today, either, so he has ended up with a fabulous victory in his burgeoning career.
