Super Mario Making (another) Comeback!

Postby Tugboat on Tue 6/Mar/12 10:27pm

Deserves its own thread since I couldn't decide whether it was something that should go in the "things that make me go w00t" thread or "things that make me LOL". :D

My Italian is non-existent but apparently the gist of this article from La Gazzetta dello Sport is that Mario Cipollini is making a return to the pro-peloton primarily in the role of a lead-out for Andrea Guardini of team Farnese Vini-Selle.

What a dream it would be to see him win another stage at the Giro :cool:

Why, yes I do, Fraser! Identical to those ones Cipo is wearing there, as a matter of fact. I also have some yellow framed ones with clear/pink lenses for night riding that just give me flashbacks to the 80s, man. :paranoid:

I'm not sure, probably just some random private joke or publicity stunt - Cipo was famous for those.

Have you got that picture from Cycle Services where Cipollini is leaning on the support car?
I know technically he is a patchy cyclist - But the man has style
