Is that good or bad? :confused:
Well I guess it's good. He used to be a F1 driver, he's got to know something about aerodynamics :D

Just watched an interview on youtube. Apparently he's good friends with Di Luca and lots of other pro riders, especially from Abruzzo. He started working with Specialized this year.

Wasn´t there some helmet story when Di Luca won the Giro in 2007? Trulli wearing a rosa helmet, or sth like that?

He's not proficient in english, that's for sure.
Gotta say his italian is not immaculate either :D
it's the same with Alberto he speaks every language really bad even Spanish :D though Berto did do the T-A interviews in English, that was cool. But I don't mind riders doing interviews in their own language

I found this:


And there are links mentioning that rosa helmet too :)
Thanks :), so evident links between cycling and Formula1 in Italy (Trulli-Di Luca) and Spain (Alonso huge cycling fan).

Sad for top cyclists though that difference in salaries is also quite evident... :D
 
Ok SO Nibbs is ready to go for M-SR once again- We all know he -at least- will attack in the Poggio- BUT- the forecast indicates that conditions might deteriorate-so if that happens- he'll be up there to get his reward.

Good luck Shark:)

They don't have to bring their own sponsors though, usually.

our favourite squalo will stay in tenerife until the 9th of this month and then will go reckon a few stages of the giro, particularly the MTT and the last 3 mountain stages.

then he will ride trentino and liege before the giro, reaching the giro with 29 racing days in his legs which is 9 more days than wiggins.

Sounds good to me to be honest
