    Moser racing in Brooklyn tomorrow (4-21-12).

    I figure this might belong in Classic and Vintage.

    I would get more excited if he gave out some of his wine, as well.

    The hedge-fund-weekend-riders are going to be riding more expensive bikes than Francesco Moser. I miss the Prospect loop.

    When asked what he thought his chances are in the race Moser said "I can hold anyone's wheel for 44 miles".

    . Mr. Moser raced with pure class and finished in the main field but was often seen in the top 10. The 61 year old revealed this was his 4th time on the bike this year. After the race Mr. Moser signed autographs and posed for pictures and always had a smile on his face

    Also, Moser has kept his old bikes and as a collection at his cave

    Well, yes I suppose, but without any cynicism, and more awe. Just that people were clearly honored to ride with him.

    Yeah. Overly cynical comment Whatwolf. Woke up grumpy. Anywhere a Champion appears, it is a mixture of both, I guess.
