And I am sad that it is (almost) over.
A couple of things from the morning's pre-stage show:
Di Luca will be tailoring his training after the season to Giro 89.
Rujano, whose hero was Pantani, donated 10.000 EUR - his prize money for the green jersey? - to the Marco Pantani Foundation. Now I want to see him next to Magnus Backstedt, who weighs exactly twice what he does.
Savoldelli, when asked how he surmounted the previous two years of terrible health, he said "I just rode, life is like that."
When I lived in Vicenza in 1958, I could never dream how much cycling, cycle racing, and what goes with it would mean to me.
