|If you are a Mario Cipollini fan, you can help send him to the tour.
Here's how: (link to article on Specialized.com website)
IMHO, the selection process for Le Tour has always bewildered me.

|He openly said that he will not ride the tour even if they invite him. But again, it might just be angry words. I think based on the Team's performance this year, they will have no problem getting the wild card. I think Mario has more feeling for the Giro.
I do not like the way Specialize's way of "getting Cipo in the Tour" crap. I think for one, they are trying to cash in on Cipo. Second, annoying the Tour organizer with junk mail of same content will have just adverse effect on the selection.
|Cipo doesn't like Marie Le Blanc||yeah right|

-Isn't this called advertising? Of course Specialized wants Cipo in the tour, they pay good money in exchange for exposure. I really hope AS gets to go, they deserve it a lot more than some of the French teams that will get to ride.

|I don't think the translations match. My french is a little rusty, but it's saying something about drinking wine and eating cheese all day long.|

|Do we invite Japanese or other baseball teams to the "World series?"It's France's race, and, being French, they'll have in it who they want. That's their decision.|

|If Lance switched teams or even wanted to go to the tour alone to win a 4th straight tour unhelped. What would the tour organizers say? Mario is fitter than ever and I think he can finish and win the green jersey. He's getting up there in years but age isn' t always a factor.

|Yeah, I took part in the email campaign, but did modify their letter (French & all, thanks to Alta Vista translations!; hope I didn't mention anything about wine & cheese all day long). I said something to the effect of "never mind the fact he has yet to complete a Tour, but that's never stopped anyone from winning it before," etcetera. We'll see what happens, I suppose.//dhs|| |
