    It is both. If you say "il", as in "THE" then that is Coppi. If you say "un", then they are hyping
    another dude. Remember that the French, Italians and Americans for that matter are sometimes guilty
    of excess hyperbole.

    What this really means is that the more you argue on RBR, then less effective your training is. The
    people that argue the most are *obviously* not putting in the hours on the saddle.
