Fan Club Season
After a long season many of the riders get together with their fan club for a luncheon or dinner to celebrate.
Recently the Damiano Cunego Fan Club celebrated in Peschiera del Garda at Lake Garda. More than 200 supporters attended along with teammates Marzano and Bertagnolli.
"It's always a beautiful thing when you have the chance to celebrate with all your friends," Cunego explained. "During races I always see so many of my fans on the sides of the roads, they're outstanding and there are no fans like them. I think it's important to celebrate with them."
Another rider celebrating with his fans in Verona was Elia Viviani (center of photo) of Liquigas-Cannondale. This up and coming rider won his first Pro Tour stage victory this year at the Tour of Beijing.
