The speedy Alessandro Petacchi added another feather yet again to his cap by finishing at the third place at the tour de san Luis while Mark Cavendish acquired the first place by winning the tour.

He has already bagged 51 grad tour stages. He took part in the race as the rider of team Lampre-Merida. His competitors in the game were Palma (Jamis Sutter), Juarez (Mexico), Lucero (san Luis Somos Todos), Nazareth (Funvic), Hacecky (Dukla), Perez (Buenos Aires) and de Luna (Mexico). He said to the reports that he had to struggle during the last t five kilometers due to problems in signaling. Because of that mark Cavendish whizzed past him and won the race. After him, were modolo and he finished 2nd.

Although he is 39 years old now, but exhaustion does not seem to get its way into Alessandro Petacchi. It was just because of the problem with the visibility of the signals that he could not become a winner as believed by the fans. Nevertheless, third position overall is not a bad catch believe the critics.

But all had not been well for the rider a few years ago. He had accidentally overdosed with his asthma medications. But he was let off after the truth of the incident got revealed. Recently, however there has been a change in the laws which say that stricter investigation methods should be adopted so that no one can dodge the punishment. But it is also being seen that the players who had been banned for quite a while now, can play for their nation, as a second chance in their lives and career, after years of punishment, after it gets quite insignificant. Alessandro Petacchi is definitely not among them.
