    If you have a dvd player with zoom you can see in several side shots on the downtube it says MASI. Now a bigger question is did he ride a Masi or did they just put a decal on a bike, like a schwinn for example?

    I read it was a Masi & the Italian team was riding Colnagos. The bike Dave (& eveyone else) rode in the little 500 was an AMF Roadmaster, I saw one in the LBS for an overhaul recently, really crude & made you wonder why the owner would spend the money to have it maintained. Don

    I've heard that it was specifically a Masi Gran Criterium
