Legends made, legends remembered

Today our tappone included both the Passo Mortirolo and Gavia. Here's a shot of John at the Marco Pantani memorial on the Mortirolo climb. There's an inscription - "To you cyclists. To you passing by I ask only a small gesture, a little greeting, a little thought for this great man who liked to make us dream. Let's give homage to the Pirate! Let us remember that this is HIS climb, his peak, his way to make us experience emotions, true emotions, emotions we experienced only as children. He will never be forgotten."
The next shot is of Jack and Larry as they make their way up the Passo Gavia while another shows Larry `clowning around on a "motorcycle"....about as close as he gets to one these days. Finally there's a photo of the anniversary sign atop Passo Gavia. Tomorrow we're off to Lake Como and the shrine and museum at the Madonna del Ghisallo to complete our tour.
