The Final GoodBye to Franco Ballerini
Five thousand people crammed the piazza in front of the church in Casalguidi (Pistoia), in Tuscany, to attend the funeral of Franco Ballerini on Tuesday afternoon.
Generations of champions were present from Corrieri to Martini, from Soldani to Gimondi, from Moser to Saronni, from Fonndriest to Cipollini, from Bartoli to bettini, from Petacchi to Di Luca, from Cunego to Paolini, from Pezzo to Bronzini. Teammates Tafi and Scinto, and Zanini and Nardello. And other teammates and friends.
