Got this from a friend in Italy. Kinda funny:

Outside my relatives "campground" in the Tucscan countryside near florence, the dog belonging to the camp's owner has the unfortunate tendency to chase bicyclists. Recently he chased a pair of bicyclists and manages to cause one to crash. Initially, the one who crashed was quite good natured about it and accepted the dog owner's apology but soon it became clear that all was not right. '"Excuse me", says the partner of the fallen one, "but don't you realize that he is Mario Cipollini?" When Mario realized that the camp owner did not recognize him, his mood abruptly changed for the worse. Dog owner had to pay for ripped Jersey (as if Cip has to buy these), etc. You can knock Cip over, insult him, but dammit, you better recognize him.

Didn't he say this too: "Not only am I the fastest rider, I am also the sexiest." My friend saw him in an interview and said that they kept trying to interview him about racing, but Mario kept talking about his shoe collection.

Maybe the dog humped his leg afterward.

We can only hope.
