I'D BET MONEY THAT MARIO CIPOLLINI WILL BE OUT OF RETIREMENT WITHIN TWO WEEKS. IF HE DOESN'T, HE GIVES UP HIS CHANCE TO BE SELECTED FOR THE ITALIAN NATIONAL TEAM AND THEREFORE WILL LOSE HIS 100% CHANCE OF WINNING THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP.
Funny you posted this, he just cancelled the NY race......chopper

Cipollini pulls out of New York City Cycling Championship

By VeloNews Interactive

This report filed July 17, 2002

According to a press release issued Wednesday by Threshold Sports, Italian cycling great Mario Cipollini will not compete in the inaugural New York City Cycling Championship after all.

Despite receiving a signed engagement contract from Cipollini's team manager on July 9, 2002, organizers of the New York event were notified on Wednesday that Cipollini's sudden retirement announcement meant that his New York appearance would be canceled.

"While we can try to enforce his contract, we can't make him ride his bike if he doesn't want to," said David Chauner, president of Threshold Sports, the company organizing the event.

Even without Cipollini, the field for the New York race is looking strong, with the likes of Lance Armstrong and 2000 Olympic gold medalist Marty Nothstein among those committed to racing on the streets of lower Manhattan on August 4.
