Riding with a Mont Ventoux Stage Winner

Buzz Yancich returns with a well done, new, short video of the Ben Vivere tour with Eros Poli. The video begins with scenes of the start of the Granfondo Avesani in Piazza Bra in Verona (listen for the cannon start). The video moves onto cycling scenes from Verona province and then onto scenes of the descent of tunnels of the Passo San Boldo. The video ends with a flashback to 1994 with Eros Poli winning the Mont Ventoux stage of the Tour de France.

The Ben Vivere group has already reserved their week with Eros for 2011; their previous Ben Vivere story appeared in four parts:
Part I
Part II
Part III
Part IV

Eros is currently preparing his tour schedule in 2011 for Italy and France. Visit for more details and contact information. Having spent lots of time riding with Eros I should point out that Eros was born, raised and lives in Verona. Couple that with a long career as a professional cyclist racing in Italy and France and you have someone that has unique insights for developing special cycling tours.
