2010 - Frezza - Pasta Montegrappa

  1. Merry Christmas

    Greetings fellow blog readers, glad tidings etc.

    I am finally feeling 100% again, I took a battering from illness in the last few weeks as mentioned in my previous post, I don't think I've ever been ill for so long. It wasn't particularly bad or painful in the grand scheme of things (it was only flu after all) but it was enough to stop me from training, which has been a little frustrating to say the least. It's been a good chance to reflect, rest and then eventually get bored even ...

  2. Quick update

    It has been a while since I have posted I know, to be honest there's been little to report in the last few weeks. I have decided to stay with my current team for the 2011 season, the team is going to be a little different to last year. I am the only rider staying on and there will be a slight name change amongst other things. More info shall be forthcoming in the next few days, weeks and months. Oh, if anyone wants a cheap team bike then please contact mpizzol@excel-sports-ltd.com, they were worth ...

  3. Not much news at the moment.

    Hopefully I will be posting in the next week or so about what I will be doing next year. Until then here are some doping stories to keep my blog alive. Two of them are supposed to be funny whilst the last two are quite sad.

    The first proves that the omerta is still alive and well, if a little stupid. Danilo di Luca is having his sentence shortened from testing positive at last years Giro by 9 months for helping out the authorities. He is very clear to stress that he didn't spit in ...

  4. Race of the falling Gran Fondos (Season's end).

    Day one: Friday

    Let me get the long boring part out of the way in one sentence: we woke up at 3:30 in the morning, drove down to Stansted, took a Ryanair flight to Venice-Treviso airport, drove to our hotel in Valmoreno and had some lunch. We couldn't decide what to eat in the hotel restaurant, so they gave us a bit of everything: It was all immensely rich, tasty and filling. Lunch was done and dusted by 3pm so it was time to assemble the bikes and go for a spin. As we were getting ...

  5. Exciting sport

    Most of those that know me will be aware that I stopped believing in the cleanliness of male pro cycling a very long time ago, in fact I'm not sure that I ever believed in it, really. Put it this way, if I did believe in it back then, I'm now ashamed to think that I ever did now. After realising that the sport wasn't clean I came to a point a while later when I justified watching it to myself by saying of some riders: well, at least he's clean, citing various nonsensical reasons to back up my statement. ...
