Following his acquittal of doping charges by the Italian national federation, Alessandro Petacchi is planning his comeback today in the criterium of Graz, Austria. The organisers of the 50-lap race on the 1.2-kilometre course in the old tow of Graz had announced Monday that the Milram print star will participate in their race.

Petacchi will compete against Robbie McEwen, the Predictor-Lotto captain who had to quit the Tour de France after not making the time cut in stage eight, suffering from crash injuries sustained in stage two.

CONI has appealed the acquittal, so the end of the case is not in sight just yet.
