Marco Pantani, speed racer

Marco Pantani will have his driver’s license confiscated and will be fined after being caught speeding, the Italian news agency ANSA reported Wednesday. The former Tour de France and Giro d'Italia winner was clocked at 118 mph on the E45 motorway Tuesday. Police temporarily gave him back the license so he could continue his journey to Rome and back to his Cesenatico home. Pantani, who made headlines last year when he lost control of his car and damaged a handful of others, could lose his license for one to three months.
