Petacchi Signs Up With Omega Pharma

The Omega Pharma team seems to be in a powered up state these days. Alessandro Petacchi, has joined up with Mark Cavendish’s team post retirement. The Italian cycling pro is a 6-times stage winner in Tour de France and has reported to stay with Omega Pharma till the end of coming year.

Petacchi would be starting his second innings post retirement on August 8 at the Kortrijk criterium which would be followed by his participation in the Eneco Tour (7-stage) which is scheduled for August 12 to 18.

While approached on his decision to join up with Omega Pharma after retirement, the ace Italian biker noted that he is in the team to provide some additional power backup to Mark’s leadput train that has started to falter since Manx’s move from the Team Sky. “I have joined up with this group planning some different role. I am focused to be one of the valuable team players, specifically regarding sprints”, stated the new Omega Pharma rider. “My main aim here is to stay functional to this team whenever necessary & to utilize my experience to shape up younger riders”.

The distinguished Italian rider started his 2013 season with participation at Lampre-Merida yet announced his retirement plans in the month of April – he was planning on making a living out of football betting instead.

However, reports came out soon highlighting the ace sprinter’s move to the esteemed Omega Pharma as a step to buck up Cavendish’s team for Giro & Tour de France. Petacchi’s move was vetoed initially by UCI since bikers are not permitted to shift in between teams till the opening of biking’s transfer window on 1st August.

On further questions about his second innings Petachhi seemed extremely elated. “I have been pretty lucky to experience great thrill in my long biking career. To come back in my game even at this age is always something really incredible”, shared the biker.
