Just thought it might be good to look back at photos from various times in his cycling career.
Both are from last years Giro.
Marco giving race leader Simoni a hard time on stage 19.
Mario and Marco having a joke on stage 8.

Nice photos...

I always liked Pantani, too bad what happened to him. I like all things Italian, including my Italian wife and my Colnago.

I set the one with Cippo as my desk top.

You have to remember that these guys are mere mortals and not god's. They have lot to live up to, the life at the top is not always what it appears... a lot of pressure...

I'll have to dig up a couple of old tapes of the Giro and watch him..

He was the last guy to win both The Giro and TDF in the same year, it might not ever be done again....

Thanks, I enjoyed them very much.

There is a defiant loss in the force. Good by Marco. I will miss your fighting spirit.

For some reason I thought it was Stephen Roche ?

I do agree with your post though ;)

Roche was the last rider to win the Giro/Tour/Worlds in the same year. The only other rider to do this was Eddy Merckx.
