    Hello,
    how bore your cycling passion?
    As for me in 1975 (before I was a Gimondi "tifoso", he always was engaged against E. Merckx ,so we, guys, always supported our champion against "the cannibal") but in that summer time during the Giro my passion exploded. In the last stage who finished to the top of Passo dello Stelvio, our Fausto Bertoglio rose jersy, won his duel against Francisco Galdos, spanish, in a very interesting fight during the bends of the mytic slope.
    After that, I din't never forget cycling. :)
    Sportly.

    I really took a liking to road cycling watching (or reading about) some of the big names from the eighties - Phil Anderson (Australia), Robert Millar, Lemond, Fignon and Kelly.

    Those were the days.

    For me it was Lemond. He was the first American to win the Tour De France. But I had always admired (and still do) Eddie Merckx because of his dominance in so many cycling events. With all respects to Lance Armstrong I've never thought of him like Lemond or Merckx but more as kind of a T.D.F. specialist. Also an honorable mention to Davis Phinney who won just about everything here in the states, and who was the first American to win a stage in the Tour De France.

    Yes, I hear Phinney's son is moving up in cycling as well.

    I had never given cycling a passing thought when I was invited to a friends house to watch the 1984 Olympic Road Race. It was the Summer before my senior year in high school. Watching Alexi Grewal sprint around Steve Bauer and throw his arms in the air literally changed my life!

    I saved some money and bought my first road bike (a Club Fuji) several months later.
