Roadside Retro 2014: Today on PEZ our superfan in Italy, Alessandro of AlbumCiclismo looks back at some of his best times chasing the Giro di Lombardia and also looks ahead to this Sunday's big race.
'Goodbye from Bergamo' - seems a fitting title for the last race of the pro cycling season "proper". While riders and fans enjoy the last-day-of-school atmosphere, I was living out a wish that's been in the making for almost 10 years - to chase Il Lombardia myself.
Roadside Report: The last race chase of the year was this past weekend in Italy for our race chaser Alessandro at the beautiful semi-classic, Giro dell'Emilia.
