Martinello explores options

After being suspended from activities on Wednesday, Silvio Martinello is looking at other options. The former Italian National Track DS has agreed to the dismissal by the Italian cycling federation (FCI).

"To be a federal advisor in the best possible manner and to take the opportunity to explore future employment," commented Martinello [on his plans].

Martinello, after a lack-luster performance by the Squadra Azzurra Track World Championships, was given the post of federal advisor while FCI President Renato Di Rocco searches for a replacement. 43 year-old Claudio Santi, ex-professional and track DS, is a likely replacement as the Italian builds for the 2008 Olympics.
