Alessandro Petacchi has avoided hand surgery after being checked over by Professor Mario Spinelli at the Livorno hospital in Italy. Petacchi fractured his hand in an incident at the end of the stage 15 of the Vuelta a Espana.

"Professor Spinelli told me that the fracture is okay and that I have to rest for a week. I will make another check next Monday and, perhaps I'll be okay to return to training," said Petacchi.
