What's Cool In Road Cycling

Stage 12: Rider Comments

Loda: “Today me and Paolino (Tiralongo) were in an escape. Of course we didn’t collaborate, but when our team manager blocked us, we waited for the group as we started today with the idea to win with Petacchi. Alessandro showed his power also in a long
distance as today’s stage, and hopefully he will find a place in the Italian National team. But I hope Ballerini will see also who is working hard as me, that I can do my part on a track like Zolder”.

Petacchi: “I dedicate this victory to my grandpa, who left us 15 days ago, in the first stage of this Vuelta. Now I don’t wanna talk about me and Mario at the World
Championship, as until Paris-Tours I’ll wear the Fassa jersey, and so we will be opponents. After that race, we will talk about our positions in the Italian team.”

Cipollini said that he wants only another “choice” in the Italian National team for Zolder. Many people talk about Bettini. But Bettini said that beside Cipo and him,
there could be another man as for example Di Luca.
