Mario Cipollini – Super Mario has done it! He won his 42nd stage of the Giro d’Italia (Tour of Italy) breaking the record for most ever stage wins. He tied the record yesterday and broke it today. Today’s coverage was the best I have ever seen in a Giro. I have been watching it for the past several years and I just have to say what a great job by the helicopter camera. Today’s stage ended in the streets of Montecatini Terme with every good sprinter fighting for position right off Super Mario’s wheel. The shoulders were slamming, the curses were flying and even one punch thrown. Look for a disqualification tomorrow after the officials review the tape. Great race – great action…

It is almost TOUR TIME!! The 100th anniversary of the Tour de France….
