LPR Brakes' veteran sprinter Alessandro Petacchi is hopeful of a busy Spring program, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. Petacchi, who turned 35 last Saturday, could ride the Tour of Flanders and the Three Days of De Panne-Koksijde if his team is granted a wildcard entry to the event.

Petacchi also added to speculation that Michele Bartoli will actually make a comeback to racing, just weeks after the Italian expressed his desire to make a return to professional competition. It could be with the LPR Brakes squad, too, judging by Petacchi's comments.
