” I want to win the Worlds ” said Mario Cipollini, while visiting the World Championship circuit at Zolder, Belgium, following his 9th place in Sunday’s Tour of Flanders.
“The course suits me well”, said the Tuscan sprinter, of the 13km mostly flat circuit.
He went on to state:
“Our team has to be clear from the first kilometer to the last that there is one captain.”
Sounds like a tall order for the Squadra azzura, who have about as much cohesion as a week old band-aid, when it comes to giving all for their country around October each year.
