Bicycle Quote: Paolo Savoldelli, leader in Giro d' Italia

“I broke my nose and jaw in a collision with a motorbike in 2003, got a virus from over-training in 2004 and then had another two accidents after that. I've still got nine screws and a titanium plate in my collar bone. Hopefully I'm being paid back for everything I've been through. Victory in the Giro would mark the end of all my bad luck.”
