Steel Wül Travel Trivia

Who is autographing my ID tag?

Melchor Mauri

Dave Reid with the correct answer.

Melchor won the 1991 Vuelta de Espana. He dropped Big Mig on stage 13 going into the ski resort of Valdezcaray. From 1991 to 1995 there were only 2 humans to beat Mig in a TT, Melchor did it 3 times. This photo is from the 2003 World Police and Firefighter Games in Barcelona, Spain. Lets just say that the Europeans take care of there ex-professional cyclists. This was during the famous heat wave that hit France and Spain that summer. The RR course was held on the same course as the 1992 Olympic RR (Mountjüic). RIP Fabio Casartelli.
