    Good luck Mike (Sausage Man ha ha ) . My good thoughts and extra Karma will invisibly be pushing you up every Italian hill during the Giro. Come for a stay at the house in Nederland any time to get those boosting fat ruby red corpuscles that may help in victories. Buona fortuna macaco and “suck the right wheel and prosper”.
