Letter From Italy

Canadian road racer Paul Kelly, who is racing in Italy, sends us regular reports about his experiences in the Italian racing scene. Here is his first one for the 2000 season.

Hi everyone,

It's been a slow beginning to the Italian season, after a good early start with the national team at the Tour of Malaysia. I'm back in Italy, racing for SC Reda-Baggioni once again, after autumn rumors of a contract with Cantina Tollo fell through (it seems that only riders with family in the right loops, or money, turn pro here). Now at least, there's something to write home about:

Eliseo Dal Re, my SC Reda-Baggioni teammate, won the XXV Coppa Caduti di Reda on Sunday. The challenging course covered 150 km in 3 hours and 44 minutes (avg. Speed 40km/h). Eliseo and Mirko Biondi - also from SC Reda-Baggioni - finished 23 seconds ahead of a 4 man chase group. Patrik Montanari (GS Parmense) won the sprint for third. I finished 19th, coming about 2 minutes down on the leaders, in what remained of the 160 rider field (still not bad for a Canadian kid racing clean, eh?). Great teamwork during the entire stage allowed us to keep our fittest riders, Dal Re and Biondi, fresh for their final attack on a short 20% grade at 10km from the finish. Their top placings gave our team some points towards qualification for the Giro D'Italia Dilletanti...which we desperately needed after much misfortune, and plain lack of speed in the early season. We also confirmed our participation in the Giro delle Marche, a 4 day stage race over the Easter weekend.
