Hah! Thanks for the reminder. Now I remember it.
EPIC Androni fail.
Makes Sky efforts yesterday look extremely successful.
4 against Cunego, but all in a small group, yet Savio's boys rode like a bunch of clowns.
Team work went out the window as each took turns at attacking Lampre's finest, but NEVER did they hit him with a double (or triple) whammy.
Damiano, took it all.............and them all, with ease.

I miss him as well, and his grinta and ability to animate races in particular, but he just didn't have anything left in him anymore. At least he went away in good style, somewhat fulfilled in comparison with Heras for example, a rider of similar talent I believe.

Slightly off topic, I'm almost sure you have it, but just in case, some good man has uploaded Gibo's 2005 Mont Faron spectacular win in decent quality:
