Petacchi wins second stage of Volta of Catalunya

Italian veteran Alessandro Petacchi won the second stage of the Volta of Catalunya on Tuesday, while Spanish cyclist Alberto Contador remained ninth in the overall standings with cycling's governing body close to its decision over whether to appeal his clearance of a doping ban.
The 37-year-old Lampre rider finished the 169.3-kilometer (105.2-mile) ride from Santa Coloma de Farners to Banyoles in 4 hours, 11 minutes, 8 seconds.
Latvia's Gatis Smukulis of HTC-Highroad leads the overall standings after two stages.
Contador tested positive for clenbuterol but was later cleared of wrongdoing by the Spanish cycling federation.
The International Cycling Union will decide by Thursday whether to challenge the decision.
