    Amusing bit of trivia I read about Paul Dooley, (actor who played the father): In college, he minored in Italian.

    I worked with a guy who had gone to IU-Bloomington.
    He scoffed at the rock quarry swimming scenes.
    His exact words: "NOBODY ever wore clothes there!"

    Great tribute page!

    I still have a hat pin, hat and water bottle from the Coor's Classic. I grew up in Colorado Springs and really enjoyed being a spectator for the Classic.

    Kiitos!
    Have you seen the movie in Finnish?

    I read once that in the Italian version, they distinguished the English vs Italian dialogue as Italian vs Venician dialect (Team Cinzano spoke Venician)

    I saw it when It came out -as many of us, it inspired us.
    I was like 12-13 and I built my first roadbike then and rode it all over maryland, still have it back home.

    I now have the movie on dvd.

    I think i can get the vespa detail correct on your page- have to watch it today.
