MMT is back online after well earned 4 week holiday and has number of interesting stories and pictures to share. The three highlights being:
- Meeting the grandson of Enrique Otero, who in 1927 established the first bicycle shop in Madrid. Unfortunately, they don’t make frames anymore. They had a fabulous collection of old bikes. You can find them at https://www.facebook.com/otero.bicicletas/
- Driving up Mont Ventoux in Provence, France.
- Checking out some very cool bike shops in London and spending way too much money.
Finally, a big ‘chapeau’ to Esteban Chaves of Orica-GreenEDGE who finished 8th in the 2015 Giro di Lombardia, a slender 56 seconds behind the winner, Vincenzo ‘I won’t cheat this time’ Nibali.
Surely it must be time make Chaves an Australian citizen.
More later this month.
