Here's yours truly with Ted Costantino, book-wizard at Velopress. Old folks might remember Ted as half of the team at the late, and much lamented Bicycle Guide magazine before Petersen purchased and destroyed it. Ted now spends his time finding great cycling titles to share with us, including the newest, Italian Racing Bicycles. I got just a quick look at this soon-to-be-published work and I can't wait to get my hands on my own copy. This year's seen a great collection of English-language books come out about our favorite subject, cycling in Italy. MILLE GRAZIE to all!
