«Nessuno di loro, o quasi, è iscritto ad una società sportiva, neppure come dilettante. Fanno ore e ore di allenamento ogni giorno, parlano di Coppi, Bobet e degli altri assi solo per imitarne l’andatura e la pedalata.»

On the way back from Geneva, we stopped in Lausanne to drink a good beer and meet a good friend. We really love Lausanne, small city with a very “chic” taste of frenchness and not at all swissness. Lausanne is not only ECAL or TAS, we love Lausanne for the « À travers Lausanne » a contre le montre, the tuesday after the Tour de France. The race was like a “red carpet” for the winner of the Tour. The depart was in Quai d’Ouchy and the arrivee, after 4km, in Sauvablin but the Rue du Petit-Chêne was a breakheart hill, 200m at 18% in pavé. The race was won by FAUSTO COPPI, 4 times by EDDY MERCKX, POULIDOR, 5 times by ZOETEMELK and in 1998 after a fantastic Tour, by MARCO PANTANI.

ITA — Giancarlo corre. Quattro o cinque allenamenti, tra i sessanta e i cento chilometri percorsi  alla settimana, a seconda della gara da preparare. Pioggia, vento, neve, non sono un problema. Se il lavoro o la famiglia non lo permettono, si rinuncia a qualche ora di sonno e l'alba è il momento giusto per allenarsi. La corsa è per Giancarlo un esercizio mentale, prima che fisico; qualcosa che assomiglia ad una meditazione in movimento. SUPERLEGGERO corre con Giancarlo. ENG — Giancarlo runs. Four or five training sessions, between sixty and a hundred kilometres covered every week, depending on the race he's preparing for. Rain, wind, snow, no problem. If work or family commitments don't allow it, he sacrifices a few hours of sleep and trains in the early morning.  For Giancarlo, running is an exercise for the mind rather than the body; something like meditation in movement. SUPERLEGGERO runs with Giancarlo.
