  1. Saw her and her bike at the Tour of Flanders start in Oudenaarde...very nice...

  2. I would love to try to keep up with Monia on my bike every day of the year...talk about great motivation to train hard and learn Italian, Monia is it!

  3. Our kit and bikes are all done in the Italian tricolore as well though we're not champions -- except maybe of the Italian cycling lifestyle. "Pedala forte, mangia bene!" pretty much sums it up though these days we're not quite so "forte"....at least on the bike that is....at the table it's a different challenge, one we're always up for!
