Alessandro Petacchi visited a family wine cellar in Italy for a toast to his return to competition soon. Petacchi signed with Team LPR and will start racing after his suspension expires at the end of August.
Petacchi paid a visit to the Bellavista wine cellar of the Moretti family, located in Erbusco. The wine cellar is a real reference in the area. Petacchi has a bit of time on his hands right now, following his suspension and the contract termination by Milram. However, lately things are looking better for the quiet Italian again.
Petacchi said that "After signing for LPR, I was relaxed. Besides the intensification of my training to get back into competition at the end of August, I wanted to spend a few hours to go about my old hobby: That for wine. I came to see the Morettis and we had a toast that I think – and I hope – will be a good sign to start my new adventure in the best manner."
