  2. Hi,

    That was the time when sportsmen ran for their shirt and not for money.
    Cyclism (sp?) was very important in those times to gain supporters since there was no TV and other media didn't reach as far as they do now, this was a way for clubs to make themselves noticed.

    Best regards,

    José

  3. Hi Josè, times have certainly changed. The sport was once just SPORT, there were athletes who give the soul to emerge without doping and other crap. Not having the technology as we have now, people would gather around the campfire chimney and told their stories during the holidays and festivals. People know everything, and it helped, especially when someone was in financial difficulties, no one was denied a piece of bread. My grandfather, pictured, has succeeded during the Second World War to raise four children despite also had food to eat potato peelings. Of course many people were poor and there was that sense of solidarity that is now missing. Excuse the translation but I hope you have understood the meaning of the speech. Thanks for the visit, more photos coming soon ...
    Saludos from Italia
