Garzelli: “Never Been So Fine”
Stefano Garzelli, sounding like he just stepped off an NBA, described his condition as “never been so fine”. Of course something may be slightly off in the translation, but you get the picture…

This year has always been looking for the hot weather, to avoid catching a cold like last year. His form is great, and he says “It will be important to lose nothing to the opponents. This will be a Giro that it will be played in “seconds”, so it will be important to take the advantage of all stages from the 2nd in Ans Belgium”. The Italian rider showed great condition in these last weeks as at Liege, where he finished 2nd. “I cannot give myself a percentage, but the legs are turning well and the moral is high. I hope I don’t catch bronchitis like last year, and I trained always in hot temperature last winter for this”. He is also confident in his team. “There are Noи and Evans, who did really well at Romandie, who will help me in the hills, Cioni and Bramati on the flats. And there are also Bettini and Nardello, two guarantee”.

For him Casagrande is the most dangerous, “but there are also Simoni and Garzelli, in a Giro verynervous and stressful for the stages out of Italy and for the transfers. As always, anyway, the winner will be a rider who rides fast on hills and is always tough”.
