Frankie Andreu: My First and Only Giro d'Italia

Good story here by Frankie Andreu of his 1990 Giro d'Italia. An excerpt:

"The 1990 Giro was won by the giant Italian Gianni Bugno. At more than six feet tall, Bugno was a strong, powerful rider who dominated time trials and climbed well enough to compete against the skinny climbers. He was an Indurain type of rider with a backside like a horse. His ass and thigh muscles seemed ready to burst out of his spandex when he stood on the start line. And I can only speak about him when he was on the start line because it was very rare that I saw him after that."
