Garzelli starts a family

The first son of Stefano and Maria Garzelli was born yesterday at 2pm in Valencia, Spain. Little Marco Garzelli weighs 3.4 kg, with both mother and child reported to be in good health. "That was such an unbelievable emotion," said Garzelli. "I'm going to stay with my family in the following weeks to realise what it means to be a father."

With father-son acts such as Eddy and Axel Merckx, the question on most cycling fans' lips is whether Marco will follow in his father's footsteps. Garzelli had this covered, saying: "I know it's obviously a bit soon, but I'm looking forward to going for a ride with him."
