I remember it as one of the most horrifying events in sports that I ever witnessed. His funeral was at the Saint Peters Church in Ghent. Because my University at the time was 200 metres away, I skipped class and went to the square. The ceremony was on big screens and lots of cycling royalty and sport fans were attending. I'll never forget those two days.

The guy had a very charismatic smile and his wins in the Giro and Vuelta made me happy.

Yeah, but Albanese would be one of the team's best options tomorrow, so seeing him in the breakaway today is a bit random.
Ya, he's a decent sprinter so was surprised, but he took the KOM jersey for a few stages in Tirreno so guessing he might be going for that in the early stages again here. Surprised they didn't sent two riders into it really considering it wasn't difficult to make the break.
