You don’t have to be particularly observant to have noticed that things have been pretty damn quiet here on the Cicli Berlinetta blog of late. For good reason! Amongst all kinds of goings on, we have been on the road.
Specifically, the Guv’nor made his way to France, as he is accustomed to doing during those three summer weeks when the cycling world goes crazy for the biggest of the stage races. Dustin met up with our local leading lensman Tino P and legendary sprinter Erik Zabel, and together they witnessed the action as Nibali rode to victory on the Tourmalet. In the above pic, the aforementioned trio pose with 3 time Champion of Italy Giovanni Visconti of Team Movistar.
Dustin even got to sit in the Canyon team car as it sped down the famous mountain directly behind the peloton, reaching speeds of 110 kilometres per hour! That velocity actually makes your humble blog-poster’s knees wobble just thinking about it!
