After his Stage 12 win in Burgos at the Vuelta a España, Alessandro Petacchi was thinking of his family, saying, "I dedicate this victory to my grandfather Angelo, who died on this day three years ago. Although I sat in a bad place on the last corner, [Alberto] Ongarato and [Marco] Velo managed to get me there, which was a tough job."
It was the La Spezia speedster's 39th stage victory in a Grand Tour, and already he has his eyes on another stage win - the stage into Valladolid on September 13. From there, it's anybody's guess if the in-form Italian stays until the Vuelta's conclusion. "If I feel good, then I could perhaps keep going through till Madrid," he said.
