Mario LASHES Out!!!!

Discussion in 'Road Cycling' started by ronde chumpion, Apr 20, 2004.

  1. Hey,

    'Super' Mario spouted off at the post race about how stupid the US
    Riders are, and complained about the criterium style laps at the
    finish in stage one.
    This after the following quotes from from the
    pre-race interview.

    from April 20, 2004:

    He (Mario Cippolini) was then asked if he knew anything about the
    domestic sprinters he would be facing in the sprint finishes. He said
    he didn't know anything about the domestic riders here but that he
    hoped to not be beaten by someone with "less value" than himself (big
    laugh from crowd, and the interpreter said that maybe his English
    wasn't so good!), but he would respect whomever might beat him. He
    knows a valuable rider might not be the one with the big name. But he
    hopes to win stages here and beat the other riders.

    Stage 2, 3, and 7 for the sprinters.
