FRFuggitivi's New Patron of the Falling Leaves

'As the air begins to fill with the smell of dead leaves riders and spectators prepare for the last and toughest classic of the year. The list of winners includes giants like Coppi and Merckx. The toughest edition ever was won by a Dutchman'

- IL Lombardia

Our FRFuggitivi group met over at Guy's for a warm gathering of bike banter, enjoying food and drink, planning for the upcoming 2014 season and watching the clever documentary... IL Lombardia.

I agree with Guy, that Jo De Roo is our new patron... former two-time Dutch National Champion (1964-65) and more importantly... two-time champion of the Giro di Lombardia (1962-63).
