putting 12min into Simoni and almost 20min into the previous 2 edition winners Cunego and Savoldelli.
But you have to remember this Basso was only intending to dope for the Tour de France....so this performance was obviously clean
and remember we now know that everyone stopped doping in 2006.......
I dont think we'll ever see UFOBasso/RoboBasso again.....and i think if we did the sport would have to have taken some serious steps backwards
