    Living near Italy I watch a lot of cycling on their TV stations and read their newspapers and websites. Certainly they have got loads of talented cyclists, but it always makes me somewhat angry (well, I can't find another word) to see that they all concentrate on Giro and never really try to come in forces to France. Of course, Giro is a very important race too, especially for them, but they should understand that it's the Tour that really counts and catches the world's biggest attention. Italians have such passion for this sport and they would certainly know how to make the Tour even more exciting. Just imagine Frigo, Savoldelli, Simoni, Pantani, Casagrande, Garzelli... fighting with Lance and the rest on the french mountains!

    So what, you get to see Frigo, Savoldelli, Simoni, Pantani, Casagrande and Garzelli race up a few hills in the Giro .......you lucky bastard :)
