Tattoos of the peloton #15 - Pozzato

Filippo Pozzato. I couldn't find anything that translated the 3 symbols.

He won Milan-Sanremo in 2006 after a great ride which saw him first work for team leader Tom Boonen.
He jumped to Liquigas for this season to be a team leader.

Other results

2005 HEW Cyclassics
2003 Tirreno-Adriatico overall
2004 Tour de France stage

I read somewhere that it is his fiancee/girlfriend/wife's name. I believe her name is Chiarra. Of course, I could be wrong.

Thanks for the info and thanks for reading.

Japanese katakana (characters used for foreign words or emphasis) translates to kiara or "kee-ah-rah" which agrees with other comment of Chiarra -- we just saw this tattoo in the VS coverage of stage 7 of 2009 Tour de France while Pozzato was in the break.
