Ivan Basso: “I hope to do big things this year: run a great Tour de France but also try to win any Classics of North”.
Alessandro Petacchi: “I would like to do something important in 2003: win a classic for example. Milano- Sanremo, Tour of Flanders, Paris-Tours, these are the right classics for me. Milano-Sanremo is my favourite race and I will try to be ready for this objective. Now that I won at the Vuelta, I want to win also at the Giro, at home. This would be really nice…”
Dario Frigo: “I will try to do at 100% the Giro d’Italia, but I want to be already fast at the start of the season”.
Giancarlo Ferretti: “The Giro d’Italia is important for us. Dario Frigo want to do it well, and if Aitor Gonzales will run with us, we won’t forget him. So we will have 2 riders for the final ranking. With also Petacchi for the stages, we hope to do well…”
