Surprise! Yeah, crazy hugh? Yes, he still smells and looks good after a four hour ride.
Mario lives across the street, and apparently he likes riding with us, because he said "see you next week". I don't think the novelty of riding with him will ever wear off. It is SO COOL! Plus, he is amazingly nice and patient.
Tomorrow, we leave this oasis and fly back to Holland. We have a one day UCI race on Saturday, go to Belgium for a few days and get ready for Fleche-Wallonne on Wednesday. After racing Wednesday, we will come back to Mario...I mean Lucca for some Mario time...Uh, training that is.
