No doubt where Petacchi is...MXL02

excerpt from his press conference after his third win yesterday:

Petacchi tries to get the blue cap from the water bottle off his finger, and continues, a bit agitated. "Everyone wants to know what would have happened if Cipollini had been here. I'm not sure the outcome of the races would be any different if he were. I could beat him in the Giro and I don't see why I couldn't do the same thing here. I wish people would stop talking about him because he is not at this race, while I hope I have made it pretty clear to everyone that I am!"
And he did it again today...Dwayne Barry

with a big enough lead coming to the line to give a Cipo-esque turn-around and look as if to say, "come-on guys where are you?"
