Cycling in Rome

After 4 days of walking around the centre of Rome, i have only seen 4 cyclists insane enough to brave the crazy traffic. it is everyone for themselves on the road and it appears that only the most calm can ride a bike. one fellow (a business man) was tooling along an extremely busy via (street) with vespas and cars whizzing by. he may have even been whistling and smoking. this is the kind of rider that Team Vitesse is looking for! Serene and competitive at once. Smoking and whistling can only mean that he has incredible lung capacity.

As soon as he regained consciousness from a nasty spill after being cut off by a Vespa, I signed him to a one year contract.
