"Sis CPI twenty-five a big reason for scientists support support of the podcast is their chief to Stephen Men. And who is a listener and Well he emailed me about an episode of a few days ago over the weekend. We did a two parter on. Mario Cipollini on Stephen emailed with his own CIPOLLINI tail. He went into a very premium bike shop in south west London. He writes and because I had a double puncture wanted a couple of chips. There was eleven thousand pine bike in the window at Cetera. That sort of bike shop. I asked the owner about the nutrition. He had an offer. There were three bronze. Sis was prominent 'em he was very sneering said season and said. I only make pennies on that stuff. Pennies I don't know why bother I mentioned the I was in the industry but didn't claim my allegiance not sent him off on the same rent. I counted with but you never know when someone buying Gel might see that bike to the corner of their I and register for luther purchase. He wasn't having it. The door then burst open and three guys we can actually has from Maura. Blew into the shop at the Front was Alon turned job. Deeply tanned. Long Leather coat wearing CIPOLLINI. Bind them to almost stereotypically. Hardly King Italian security guys. He'll eat around the shop and I was slide jawed as he alighted on the science and sport product and double fisted jails proclaiming widely. These are the best. I always use these. I would never got a job. In sales says Stephen as quietly slipped by the shop leaving the owner to extol the virtues of awkward apparently not his favorite jails to So CIPOLLINI apparently was on his way from Gatwick to the show for the launch of his bike range. And so Steven A. A bystander there as Meyer. Cipollini grabbed a couple of fist foods of scientists sport. Jails you've been thinking that the last ten days or so haven't Lionel regularly during your rt rights suddenly have it with my supply a Extension of your as extensive as yours because well you've got a huge consignment of stuff uneven not well any you're supposed to send me a few and just to think I might need them all for myself. So apologies for 'em but you'll you'll survive and you only do anyway on on with on with the show so we heard from Matt Andrea and he wrote the tooth fires and Julia d'italia for a British team. And we'll hear about that in a moment or two but not two thousand. Jira was far more significant than being the only one with Or the first of all with the British professional team we spoke in our very first original episode of by the Nineteen forty-six. Gio The of rebirth. And its own way. The two thousand year was also kind of Gio of rebirth as well wasn't that are you talking about Marco Pantani Rich. I am. Yeah because his expulsion in one thousand nine really sent shockwaves through the world cycling but really I would have thought damaged. Jiro didn't it. Yeah I think it did but what was most extraordinary about the the months. The followed leading up to the two thousand two was that Pantani two thousand year was Pantani. Well completely disappeared in the sense that he didn't race a tool in the rest of nineteen ninety nine. I'm he could've come back of course two weeks later because it wasn't a doping ban. It was only a health plan. Although plenty of people drew from that well in for the he had actually used doping products but he could've come back two weeks. Mason didn't didn't race again in nineteen ninety nine in two thousand and sort of went to training camps at marketing. A lot about making a comeback. He went to a couple of rises in Spain. He did two stages of the Valenciana in February. I think and then got off. Put out the last minute a couple more one day races in Spain and then again sort of disappeared when a will We found out later that this while he started to take cocaine until abused cocaine Soon after his ejection from the in nineteen ninety nine. So how much of that going on early in two thousand and we don't know but yeah he disappeared off to those aborted comeback attempts in the spring and No one story. Main March really no one storm in April and it was widely accepted that he wasn't going to ride the Jiro. I'm the couple of public appearances. He did making not spring what to do with court cases that had arisen out of doping allegations. So it's one involving Michaela already. And he was called as a witness He was called to give evidence on the fourth of May. He was called to give evidence. Did Jerry was talking on the fourteenth of May and he left whether it was a magistrate's call police station not day where he gave evidence but he came out that day basically saying there was of course there was no chance that he was going to write The year they asked him who thought would win. The ending said well the winner will be the guy who finishes first and the Guy who finishes second. We'll finish second Helpfully and opinion pieces the next day. The Italian newspapers one I read. I think it was in Tampa under the headline. The bitter surrender and we all pretended to believe that. We'd see Marco Pantani at the start. The Jiro but none of us would bet thirty cents on it in sports and above all inciting which is a beasley exercise dust and sweat but no miracles setting aside a tentative returning Spain. In February Marco has been absent from raising for eleven months. An eternity for anyone thinking about tackling a three week race. We're staunched and dismayed the still no plan. No IDEA NO PROMISE. Pantani saying the same things today that he said eleven months ago and at the start of the season. I'll come back when I found in a piece again. So that was the fourth of May on the fifth of May. Gino Bartali died Now Gino Bartali a couple of weeks before his death had said publicly he hoped. Pantani got it together and could somehow make it to the start of the. Go on the eleventh of May Pantani is now saying So they're news crews have started trying to interview his home inches not to go. He now says he might come back and the fact that bodily had made those declarations or said those things a few weeks Elliott might influence his decision and he might try and give it a go. This point on the eleventh of May. The Italian newspapers started to speculate and and there was a story that he already had a flight reservation or a ticket for a plane was going from Bologna to Rome. A couple of days before the year was Geeta Start and so that was the eleventh of May race starting on the fourteenth on the Twelfth Thirteenth. He arrived in Rome and even then when he had arrived in Rome. He said that he might not take part and it was a fantastic Italian melodrama. That was going to be. They saw papal blessing for the ride is at the Vatican in it. Couldn't have been more melodramatic. And I remember. I was in my exams at university at the time probably wasn't wasn't following all of this new talent newspapers. I think I managed to get hold of a copy of data on the day itself when they leave the race itself. Sound like Bradley wiggins now my to get copy cats in Cuban on road and I just could not believe this because I as I was really party to all of the rumors of the days before as far as I was concerned they should just come out of nowhere. Pantani was was done and dusted pretty much a professional cyclist and then all of a sudden hairy wasn't stopped. The jaren people were even suggesting that he was going to win the rice. Well let's hear what it was like to be on the ground there and be part of the Gironde erosion to be them looking for panic his peers that the rioters and other teams were equally in the dark about whether tiny was going to appear. And all we're going to hear more from him later but John deering was the press officer for the Linda McCartney team and he was one of the the people there on the grind Unsure about whether Pantani would turn up for the two thousand zero everybody over time. It's time it's hard to live on nine hundred stuff If we hold very people got men to Pantani everywhere we went he'd be banned from the NATO Charter. Pronouncement die. Every nobody really knew if they're not an in house is only a couple of things at big buses and raciest wouldn't let riders traveling take touches. You hats official rice buses So there's a lot more mixing between teams and stuff and we've had. We went to the vaccine for rice. Tomato pipe we went to the time you United Hotel to pick them up. Everybody including got up again swing.

"At role. But even the greatest kind of year of his career. There was still time for some controversy that year. He was arrested from motor pacing on the motorway again. A suggestion that the rules don't really apply to Super Mario The lion king. I love about that story. The line is the eve is tucked in behind the smart car. Day. Little baby car and he reckons. He was doing Well he the they. The police fought using seventy kilometers. In our he reckons he was actually doing ninety. Five or one hundred kilometers in our and Yeah listening to music on his Walkman paying attention to avoid the the potholes in the roads and when he saw the policeman signaling for him to pull over just just carried on again will cover this more than the next episode won't May and all these little clues the for Meyer Cipollini. The rules just didn't apply by that time he really was while we used the word. Sheriff he was in Italian In his team psycho I into Cipollini for first time in winter two thousand two thousand and one and went to that training camp in an Marina di Grosseto in the south of Tuscany on a couple of new riders. Coupla near pros who just joined the team and I was looking up to be there for that initiation which is very much orchestrated by CIPOLLINI. One of the ride is was a young American. Could Justin Spinelli who heart turn the previous year with Amdo? My Mom Fritz. Will Fritz and he comes to say. I think organized by Annandale. In any way that night they played a game which was a kind of well it was consisted of the ride is having were being blindfolded. And having to put their finger in an unidentified substance could smell or they can taste it and they had to say what was so they started. Cipollini found the whole thing hilarious and he was sort of filling with ketchup. And this and that and Spinelli was trying to guess he wasn't always getting some rights and wrong and then for for about these third or fourth challenge. He still had the blindfold on Dario Pieri. Big Burly Dario Pieri ninety kilos of him. He was stripping off suddenly. And Dario Pieri got down on all fours with his backside about half a meter from Justin Spinelli face and they then produced a tiny dish of What they filled with Natella and Spinelli was invited to dip his finger in the Natella. And by this point you know Die Pieri was completely naked And Spinelli took off the blindfold looked at the Brown substance on the end of his finger. Looked Daria Pierre's naked backside and run out of the room shrieking which collided ally. While Lionel's goes had his hands. I'm kind of looking through the cracks and this is this is sub Sunday league. Football Club stuff. Isn't it this kind of Ben Sira? Maybe I'm too old now for this sort of thing but it's I suppose it's men in their twenties isn't idiots. He was about some of us. Were how was the time thirty? Asian should've known better. Should Para there. I also resolutely craziest one year on that training camp for putting the wrong number of bread rose in his bread breadbasket at breakfast again. Well yes this kind of excessive behavior. They these anecdotes all adopter to create a picture of CIPOLLINI. I already had really. I mean. They all conform to a type. And I wonder if that's that's off the the legacy of CIPOLLINI and I guess that's what we'll be talking about in tomorrow's episode but yeah the complicated isn't it. I mean I mentioned the in in one thousand nine hundred am I was one of the whole crowd had gathered around March cleaning just trying to catch a glimpse of him in Dublin. Despite the fight he had won the stage. We were all seduced by the th the the charisma the woman that we saw in front of us. You know the the dark side that we weren't aware of such signed clues were there. Perhaps the dogs weren't aware of dead. Become more evident. We'll talk about in the next part but before we go quick trivia question for you m you mentioned his world champion ship in two thousand and two. How many times was married? Shipley slighted for the Italian team for the world championship question. Wonderful any will it. I would guess once once. Wow one for what was it that she didn't know that that's interesting. There you go but let's hear how Mariachi Pallini stacks up in the Pantheon of the sprinters from Tom. Stay or does he think that. Cipollini the greatest of all time for as though to be honest mark because he had years that you've really unbeatable. Which was your reporting. Years is not so far behind it. He's one of the best you do. His character but also due to victory sees a Yvonne so many races. That's for sure. He was one of suspense of Of the history of cycling so that sounded fairly emphatic chaps cavendish better than Cipollini at least according to Tom Steels but what do you think mark cavendish feels about that particular question? You asked Cheapo. Who Do you think the best who was chief own? I chip chip up with me. Who Thinks I've Japan? I'm GONNA say me. We'll we'll hear mark cavendish library tomorrow. M maybe will elaborate on it too. But in the meantime Thanks for much chops. Thank you Daniel. Thank you rich. Thank you line electric..

"Dot Co. don't You k today? Then tomorrow on our JEETER. We'RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT. Mario Cipollini at the the light and shade of of CIPOLLINI and in today's episode going to be looking at as his early years up to his pump really am when he was the dominant sprinter in the world but Lila. Maybe you can take all the way. Back to the origins of Meyer Cipollini word. The Lion King Spring from well. Yeah the nicknames. The Lion King and Super Mario. They were to come much later. Just Super Mario. I mean he'd been brilliant computer games cycling wouldn't they clearly it'd be. He'd have been leading out year. I want archery Tae Mario Laming True Mary. Cipollini was born on March twenty second nineteen sixty seven in Luca. His brother Chat today was Eight years older than him and was also a professional cyclist from nineteen. Seventy eight to nine hundred ninety. Mario was napalm borne. Did you know this? And I didn't I didn't until today and I I haven't found an explanation for it. I was born in Belfour in front. That's right yeah I was going to ask you about that but I thought that was lorry driver whether that had anything to do that. No probably not Ashley piece the piece it together. Well one of the mysteries anyway. Marriott was a junior world champion in the team. Time trial on the road in one thousand nine hundred five and he turned professional for the Dow Tongo team in one thousand nine hundred and nine and that was the only season. The seasons at the two brothers wrote together also on that team with the reigning world champion Maria phoned and a future jira winner Franco kilt. Yolly CIPOLLINI's I probably witness came all at once. The Gino Di Puglia in eight thousand nine hundred ninety one thousand three stages in a row and a month later he got his first jared Italia stage win at the first attempt or in the first year they took part in stage twelve in MIATA and in one thousand nine hundred followed with two stage win so he was off to a flyer in terms of winning. Sprint finishes Daniel but was always destined to be a professional rider. Did his brothers interesting in the sport make inevitable that he would follow in this in the wheel tracks so to speak. I think he would send say yes. Napalm Amsoil as you said Shehzad was a decent pro and when a few things but N- Jerusalem Melia was probably the biggest win but Mario used to go and watch chase at I says and Tele famous story about and they always used to go up the coast from where they live near. Luca onto the roof Manta Raymond. Watch Samra and CIPOLLINI's birthday often fell actually on some raimo and one year how Cipollini was maybe seven or eight and he was there with these Dodd Rivaldo and they watch the Tongo pass and Chattanooga Boston. Mario turned to his dad and said I promise. I will win milan-san Raymond Foye one day so the was all was already sort of planted at that point and by all accounts is pretty hyperactive kid. I'm allegedly age. Sixty case mums fear. Five hundred until your first spin around the family sort of plot. The family ranch in Sanju study comfortable. I don't think that did you think that's even plausible. That story as I said. Very very hyperactive. Some was the manager of the GIST team. Piero Piero only came out of the House one day and with a contract for his brother Chaser and he remembered that Mario such handful the the family tied into an olive tree with a rope to to stop moving plausible any well. That's possible but when he got aboard his when he goes bike he was. He was quite something He won I mean a staggering number of rice in the the majority of races took part in junior and even you know as he sort of got close to become a professional. I think in in the loss in his last year or two before it did become a professional Legend has it that I would say to other items in the Peleton while you win as much as you can now because my brother's coming and he's GonNa win everything and at that point. You know people weren't only talking about Cipollini as a sprinter. I mean you mentioned that heat. He had great pedigree as a junior in time. Charles and team time trials Use The world champion Jeannie world champion. So Yeah a bit of a bit of a phenomenon by all accounts. It's interesting Donna. Looking back at his early wins. Because I have in my mind's eye C. Cipollini as this kind of muscle by very imposing character with a quite impressive physique and of course Unmodern or a recent sprint. Who's been similar in in Luke's if nothing else is Marcel Kissel but actually am when I was looking out their respective Stotts kittles bigger than CIPOLLINI. Cipollini wasn't actually. That big emmy wasn't not heavy. He was toll and but he was actually quite lean on and in those early years he was quite gangly. The other thing they have in common is having both been very strong. Time trialists as younger writers before becoming sprinters. And I guess that they were similar. 'em Or kipling became Sim- similar in style. A kettle in in you know being good Going from the front and really taking on From quite a long way being a very strong sprinter an Hartman to get around once he was in front and when he did start He was regarded as just a very very talented young writer. But people had no real inkling. It would become the personality that he did. There was a bit of a bit of flourish about him but he he started when he stays in Jira very early.

"Of the three grand tools. He's been looking very good over the first few days of the year and really confirmed that today with with a fantastic attack It's been a pretty mind blowing stage and a pretty mind blowing day for me. I'm Laura Bernie and Daniel free. Hello wise if in mind blowing day is being fraught with logistical issues. And the fact I haven't eaten for twenty four hours with us to the real number of the macho us the real crooks monster isn't it you haven't eaten when you say it'd be mind blowing. I mean he's been fairly fairly mundane most standards on the from the father. You haven't had your four enormous meals. Where alway well? We're in the queue to get on the bus which is going across. The Strait of missing remember lost the the bus the bus across the Strait of Messina team. But because we're in a big Q surrounded by team vehicles. We're about to get on the boat remember last year. We even talked about the bridge. That was never built Over the straighten Messina still not been built a year later. You are listening to this. Podcast at our did retire brought to you by. I woke up flexible loans for small businesses. Today we add in Prijedor marriage. Says you say we're well? We're in prior a modern now. Richard that at the start of the episode laws clip from a couple of years ago when Daniel and I were in the queue to get on the ferry from Sicily across to the mainland felt like a regular on that ferry. We spent hours waiting to get on board. I think commented the second time round run ran a lot more smoothly than the first and I reckon that by about twenty twenty. Five the as organizers. Got that down to a tae that crossing well hopefully napalm under. If you remember a couple of years ago we talked about this. What's become a national joke in Italy about the bridge that's never been built I don't know where where the plans are. The moment as far as connecting the mainland with Sicily and with the bridge I think it's been shelved definitively but yeah that's something Italians A very familiar with that story. Well listen in the course of the next two episodes we're building. Our own bridge aren't between the two sides of married Cipollini in a way we're looking at the great Italian sprinter. The record holder for stage wins at the GPO the Talia You know really. Larger THAN LIFE FLAMBOYANT CHARISMATIC CHARACTER. An entertainer really wasn't he? Monitored chip leany his pump which was in the nineteen ninety s and early two thousands. He's a bit like a dazzling flair Sean brightly and obscured everything else for a while and he was a bit like another charismatic cyclists who emerged reemerged in one thousand nine hundred and nine and I think will draw some parallels between Meyer CIPOLLINI and Lance Armstrong over the course of these next two episodes because Armstrong. There is a dark side at two CIPOLLINI. But we're going to really look at his career chronologically the shades darker as years have gone on. And we'RE GONNA start off in this episode looking at the the early years of Cipollini up to his pump 'em when he was the dominant sprinter in world cycling but more than that the the biggest personality in world cycling as well and somebody who I think probably left a very strong impression on the three of us given the time when we were all getting into following so much so rich. I've dressed up as CIPOLLINI today. I don't know if you've noticed. I forgot to mention that I mean. Obviously the Carl's and but also the Under the teeth Daniel and blinded here in my office after Miami Sunglasses on. But you've got the cycle casquette on your head perched on top of your Your head the rippling packs that you can see. Yeah March got under my jump so I can't see your your torso which is fortunate nor yours Lionel but you're definitely definitely reminiscent pinger. Hustle marriage to the the cycle years of marriage. Cipollini am cycle that coffee machine. Yes why I know because the not certainly something that will get into anyway All you need Daniel there. Some preko sunglasses. Remember the on trademark. What are we gonNA talk about that? It's not me I think. Well someone is. We're going to hear from lots of people in these two episodes I including rivals and and and others who raced with Cipollini am but before we get onto Mario M Super Mario the Lion King. Can you tell US Lionel The tail of the top candidate rich stage seven of Algiere from tro pay a prior a two hundred eleven kilometers. Or they have about a lovely right up. The coast should be a flat. But there is a hill in the middle and naturally Race Director Daniele Freer. Cini has sent our Jira on the. Gt Cycling Platform over that Hill. So the flattest of flack days. We've got quite a bit of climbing to do Daniel any this. Well I can. I can imagine Mario Cipollini your action to my racer And I think already stressed this. I came under great pressure from dark forces behind behind our Jira to include as many clients as possible specifically for the GT segments untold on computers talking digital cycling and flat stage a very boring and but it did remind me does remind boring. They're not they're obviously. It made stage with been made me wonder what Meyer Cipollini's reaction to this would have been and CIPOLLINI. I remember there was one. Jira presentation nine hundred ninety seven. He attended as always. He was probably an zebra print suit or something and when the Jira was unveiled and he was absolutely a gas and he said it looks like a tour of Jira of Italy Ski Resorts. We won't need An accreditation we'll need to ski pass Well it's already been established fun of the mountains. He's already been established a weekend. I'm writing the into Jira targeting the Sierra classification by doing approximately half of the the distance anyway Priam modest does give the race director of the Jiro a few options. Do you remember in Two Thousand Sixteen Richard when you'll see one a punchy finish and We came out of the press room looking for the press buffet for some lunch. And we saw colleague Alice Steph Fotheringham and we asked him and he waved his on very kind of vaguely in the direction of nowhere and we couldn't find what turned out to be just press buffet of the Jira and we ended up having just a piece or an illegal pizzeria. The piece was perfectly nice but we it was very nice and then a couple of years after that Daniel. We were that when Sam Bennett won his first grand tour stage and in the evening we had an excellent meal with Chiro. And the guys from what was that. That was yes in a place called scholar just up the coast anyway. Let's cross over to the core napalm before we do before we do. I should just stress as well. The reason I took a step prior modding Jira was and we had a cracking a belting hotel booked a place called Castelo the Remain on the way to Castroville. Larry which was going to be this. The start time for the following stage also thought town in our year of the following stage. But you were going to be staying in a tree house in the middle of a vineyard and I would have paid good money to see that. Well let's hope. Let's hope that we get to do that later. On in the air or in future years I'd no problem. We're sleeping in a tree house or Wendy House. Whatever whatever you want to lie on Sanyo any anyway. Let's cross over to the court and see how the Buffalo is getting on on the climb. They seven on our Chiro survive that Nah yesterday just about survived. I'm a tough one today. Again a coastal routes largely by the Nazi Count Prior Murray at the end. Show for Peter. Mcintosh who's being there like me. Certain as we'll up to the climb. Thank you Peter from Australia. Alex thinks so be as evening my morning. I'm a tough stage. Though I'm once again well grumbles in the Peleton restricted Daniele Free Branchini his his Co. On a sugary peg as we say in Scotland.
