Petacchi confident

The disciplinary commission of the Italian cycling federation will meet Tuesday morning to discuss the case of Alessandro Petacchi. CONI, the Italian National Olympic Committee, suspects a violation to WADA section 2.1 ('The presence of a prohibited substance or its metabolites') and is seeking a one-year ban for the sprinter of the Milram team.

As tuttobiciweb reports on its web site, Petacchi's lawyer has recently said to the media that they are trusting that the case "will have a positive" outcome. The sprinter himself is also confident, even though his morale is a little low after the unexpected exclusion from the Tour de France.
