Il Pirata day

Marco Pantani is the first pro cyclist I can remember watching in amazement when I was younger. I can't even remember the year and the race (although I was watching tv in Canada so it must have been the Tour de France) but I remember watching his vicious uphill attacks that put minutes on his rivals, not slowing down until the finish. He was impressive. His career though had a very high 'high' that didn't last long but the 'low' that followed ended up being very low, the reason for this post as today marks the 8th anniversary of his death. Here's an interesting book review about the Life of Pantani...
