Alessandro Bertolini (41) is done an age related implication.

Team Exergy frees riders from contract reeling from failed sponsorship,
another wild-goose chase victim of the inquisition.

carrara was a good domestique and the type of rider every team needs. ofc due to the stupid UCI point system those extremely useful riders don't score points and end up on this kind of situations. . .

sad to see

Seven years to the day after the death of Charly Gaul, another Luxembourg cycling legend passed away at the age of 90 yesterday: Bim Diederich.



He is the grandfather of current Radioshack rider Laurent Didier. Until the very end he kept very active, collecting cycling related articles, visiting races and even getting on the bike himself.

He wore the yellow jersey in 1951 and won stages in 1950, 51 and 52. Among his rivals, he was known for being the "Duc de Grammont" for having conquered the Mur de Grammont.
