RIP Felice Gimondi, bare så vanvittig flott den mannen (ta en kikk på filmen... en god grunn til å lære seg italiensk.. kanskje når jeg blir pensjonist)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hi43wFW7A_c
Sitat Peloton Magazine (scattante er vel et ord vi må begynne å bruke mer). We got the opportunity to chat with Felice Gimondi about his career, about racing the great Eddy Mercxk and how the racing bicycle has developed into the machine it is today. While the stories were incredible, the thing that stuck with us was a simple gesture Felice made when he said the word, scattante which in Italian means nervous, lively and even to lose one’s temper. When he talked about how a bike responded under power he would say scattante and then make a fist in front of his chest, pumping it in and out. In America we may know the gesture as a fairly crass way of suggesting lovemaking. It was some how fitting that this Italian cycling legend, who first rode a bicycle with his mother on her postal route, describes the bicycle and riding it well as a type of lovemaking—done with passion and intensity. “The Phoenix” did after all win all three Grand Tours, the world championship, Paris Roubaix, Milano-San Remo—and much of it against “the Cannibal” himself, Eddy Merckx.
