Saturday Roundup

The CyclingNews reports that even though the CAS said he didn't cheat, UCI rule breaker Alessandro Petacchi has been fired by Milram. Michael Ball is salivating at the thought no doubt since Petacchi will be able to ride as of the end of August.

Racejunkie covers lots of ground with mentions about the toughness of the "bloody" Giro, Tyler Hamilton's now seemingly plausible "twin defense", and Bjorn Leukeman's "good fortune".
