I think Gibo was more upset that Basso (probably) let Piepoli win a stage, but didn't do the same with him.

Or maybe Piepoli did pay up.

Piepoli just went down Colle S.Carlo twice as fast as Ivan The Terrible (descender)

Man, these threads are getting pretty absurd.

Anyways, Marco @ the 99 Giro was better than both of those.

Outside of the GC, Petacchi in 2004 was pretty damn dominant.
