  1. Tough days for Italian cycling in the world sense. But think of the Italians, just as in the old days they don't REALLY want to spend 3 weeks in FRANCE of all places. THAT we can understand, especially with the recent editions of the Giro d'Italia being so challenging. We hope the current economic crisis eases and more Italian teams can be created in the pro ranks.
