Giro del Friuli

Howdy Folks!

Just got home from Trieste (on the Italian-Slovakian border), where we finished the last stage of the Giro Del Friuli-Veneto-Giulia. Since the first stage, things went alright, but nothing quite as good as the 3rd. place. My teammate Mirko Biondi finished 4th in the 2nd stage, Giueseppe Bracci finished 4th on the 4th stage, and they were 8th and 9th respectively on Today's 150km final event. Mirko finished 7th overall. I had a terrible day on Friday (it was pouring rain) and lost any hope of a decent GC placing, after finishing near last, several minutes down on the leaders. The last couple days my fitness actually improved - if only the race was a few days longer. The race was won by a young German (Alexander something rather) riding for the Padovani 2000 team. Must sleep now.

Ciao!

Paul Kelly

This year, BTAC has been busy certifying bicycle mechanics across the country. Most recently, in March, six regional certifications and a number of in-shop certifications were held throughout Canada. .Here are a few of the upcoming scheduled certifications for 1999:

There will be four Level 1-Assembly and two Level 2-Repair Mechanic examinations offered at the 1999 Canada Sports Retailer Show in Toronto, September 23 - 26, 1999.
