Cataldo hit by car while training

By Gregor Brown

Liquigas neo-pro Dario Cataldo was involved in an ugly accident while training on home roads of Chieti (Abruzzo). The Italian, winner of the 2006 Baby Giro, was struck by a car when it did not yield to the right of way, according to, and luckily Cataldo was able to avoid a passing truck. The incident resulted in a broken right wrist and, likely, a month off the bike. "For how it went, I can say I was lucky," commented the 21 year-old. "Now I will concentrate on recovering and healing quickly." Cataldo took a minute to speak of his fellow Abruzzese teammate. "My countryman Di Luca? I am certain that he is thinking of the Giro d'Italia, and you will see him as a major protagonist of the Corsa Rosa."
