"Now I am doing well," noted 29 year-old Leonardo Bertagnolli to La Gazzetta dello Sport. The Italian from Veneto had stopped for a month after doctors noticed a cardiac arrhythmia but he will return to the saddle on Monday.
"I am confident, also because I no longer have the arrhythmia problems. May 7, I will return to doctor Paolo Zeppilli in Roma so that he can give me a re-evaluation."
Bertagnolli has eight wins in his career, his last coming in March 2006, when he won a stage of Tirreno-Adriatico.
