Italian sprinter Alessandro Petacchi will ride the Vuelta a Andalucia/Ruta Ciclista del Sol from February 17-21, the race organisers have announced. The agreement with Team Milram for his participation was reached quickly, according to the EFE news agency. There was mutual interest in the matter, since Deporinter, the organiser, "wanted to count on an exceptional sprinter" and the team has always had the race on its calendar.

Petacchi, who celebrated his 34th birthday on Thursday, has 129 career wins, including 4 Tour de France stages, 19 Vuelta a España stages and 24 stage wins in the Giro d'Italia.
