And go get yerself a Specialized because Cipo is now with the Acqua e Sapone team (aka the team with the ugliest kit in the world).

That's funny. I saw pictures of the Acqua e Sapone gala and some of the people were wearing the new kits. I thought they were somewhat unique. Flesh-colored, anatomically correct. Sort of like Cipo's muscle suit, except with all the skin on.

I particularly liked the red, hooded robes and black masks that the soigneurs are going to wear.

Hmmm, maybe they have another kit. The kit I saw was the one that looked like they pulled off a dead Zebra's back. Talk about fugly.

I particularly liked the topless Italian females parading around during the team launch. Ooh la la

So where is he?tuffnick

Still the question remains unanswered :)

And I bought my Cannondale cus I believe in the bikes... but Cipo is pretty cool. He's an amazing athlete. One thing that was pointed out to me is in his peak you could actually see each of his outer abs flex as he sprints maximizing power to the pedals... everyone else all you see if there legs move. Amazing.

Since Festina pulled out, Specialized hooked up with Aqua a Sapone. Cipo is on the E5Aerotec compact Sworks frame now.

Cannondale is still with Saeco. They have a better team with Simoni, Cadel Evans, DiLuca, etc. Cipo is a sponsor's dream so I know he will be missed.

Cipo doesn't do pre-season racing that I know of. I think he is enjoying life in Italy right now.

The Lion King is riding with the Acqua e Sapone squad.
There is a 2 page ad in the current VeloNews toward the back sporting a pic of Cipo and the Specialized S-Works team bike.
Here is a link to the picsspookyload

It is a link that shows the topless girls, and the new kit on mario. It has about seven photo's, and also has the link to a rather risque video of the presentation. Brush up on your Italian. http://www.cyclingteam.net/news_view.php?id=10
