PARIS : Italian sprinter Alessandro Petacchi, who recently set a record for nine stage wins on the Tour of Italy, will lead the Fassa Bortolo
team's bid for victories at next month's Tour de France.
However the Italian outfit, which thanks to Petacchi has been one of the most successful teams these past two years, have not selected Fabio Sacchi,
one of a few Italian riders currently being investigated for doping.
Petacchi won four stages on the Tour last year, and went on to win more in the Tour of Spain to become the first rider to have won at least three
stages in all the big Tours of Italy, France and Spain in the same year.
