Have you tried zip-tieing the number straight to the rails?
If not maybe something along the lines of the Topeak F22 "Wedge Pack Fixer" modified: get this thing, open it up, and rig together a small piece of metal to wrap around one of the bars on the clamp, make sure the metal is rigid enough to hold the number straight, zip-tie the number to the metal. Just a quick idea.
It may be something like this:

and it's simply zip-tied really high up along the seatpost mast, just under the rails.

Do you honestly think that, if so then you are a deplorable human being. The guy doped in sport, he lied to people, but he didn't kill anyone. He has a family and kids and you would like to see him dead. Think before you speak next time.
As for Pantani, it is worth reading Matt Rendell's excellent book. Unfortunately the research he did suggests Pantani did dope from the amateur days onwards. Mainly due to the shady soigneurs who were there to look after him on the teams he rode for. Doping was simply so ingrained in the culture it was almost impossible to avoid.

Just a minor detail really, but while he was expelled for "health reasons" (high haematocrit), and (probably rightly) accused right and left, I don't think he was ever convicted for doping in the traditional sense.
re: Pantani's junior years. i don't know about him, but back when i was ~20 y.o. i used to hang out with club riders, some of whome were racing at the national junior level, and they did dope. they spoke openly about it, laughing at those who couldn't keep up with them during the races. none of them made the cut to the pro peloton however. probably they were to weak...
so as i understand it, athletes are being introduced to doping as kids. maybe as teenagers at best - depending od the discipline. that's why IMO they're all victims here, and the coaches, trainers and doctors are those who should be prosecuted and put behind bars (literally)
