The Campagnolo Experience

Vicenza celebrations along
with a few champions!

Campagnolo's 80th anniversary celebrations was given a pleasant jolt today. Giovanni Visconti won brilliantly into Vicenza, hometown of famed Campagnolo and component sponsor for Movistar.

I have joined the Campagnolo Experience ever since 1987, happily using the smooth running Nuovo Record groupset for years. Today, I no longer use the Nuovo Record groupset and now run the 2011 Veloce groupset on my 1987 Marinoni.

Mr. Indurain...

Just a few of my favorite Campy things.

Founder, Tuillio Campagnolo passed away on February 3rd, 1983 and Eddy Merckx delivered this stirring eulogy at his funeral. 

If there's any indication that snow is threatening Friday's stage...

I wrote in a previous post, that bad weather = great cycling photography -  include SUFFERING! 

Two dramatic images from stage 15 on the Col du Galibier...
