Fassa in doubt for next season

The sponsorship of the Fassa Bortolo team is in danger of not continuing next season, according to Italian and Belgian news sources. Thus, speculation as to which team Alessandro Petacchi will ride for has already started, with Domina Vacanze and Liquigas possible candidates. The latter has lost star sprinter Mario Cipollini, and even though it has GC/hilly classics riders Danilo Di Luca, Dario Cioni and Stefano Garzelli, it still needs a sprinter. The Italian media also named Phonak and Discovery Channel, but both teams have denied interest in Petacchi.
