Young Italian on a roll

Italian Dario Cataldo has been enjoying a successful Tour de l'Avenir. In Wednesday's stage seven of the under 23 race, Cataldo took his second win Wednesday. The rider who hails from Abruzzo, is a neo-pro for Liquigas and he's hoping to carry on with his winning ways when clad again in his pro team's colors.

"The first victory as a pro has left an unforgettable emotion," said 22 year-old Cataldo. "I wish these successes will be followed by a first win wearing the Liquigas team jersey."

In addition to his win in the 175km stage from Cérilly to Super Besse, he also won last Friday's stage two and finished second Tuesday in stage six. Going into stage eight of the Tour de l'Avenir, Cataldo is sitting in 12th place overall.
