Congratulations to Michael Rasmussen who not only won stage 8 today, but also took the yellow and polka dot jerseys!
Rasmussen, a Dane, lives in nearby Lazise on Lake Garda. I've met him on the roads twice now and he has always been friendly and taken the time to answer a few questions. He can also be found occasionally at the Los Locos Bike Shop in Lazise. They manage a fan club for him; for more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
