The Motogiro of Italy, as written by the famous journalist of the 50’s, Silvio Ottolenghi, is “one of the most fascinating races that have been performed since when the man got tired of pedaling.” I want to mention a few sentences of his article published on the brochure of the Motogiro of Italy in the year 1955.
“Here we are. I hate big words; I bring awe. I do not know how to spend those: even for selling fake stuff you have to be cut for it. Yet when you get to this point and the flag is raised freezing all the noise, I always feel something inside me – a mixture of excitement and panic – that I could describe only by big words and because of failure to use them, it remains in my body for long time, as a weight on my stomach.
