Sure, ask the easy "technical" question. For my part, I want to know how Bobet can look so casual when there's a human foot sticking out of his butt.

Okay the pedal and rear wheel attached to that foot probably give it away as another rider, but still. Just goes to show what a terrific shot this really is -- great detail on Bobet, Coppi, AND their machines, and you really have to look to see that there are two other riders in the frame.

Triple bonus points if anyone can tell by the info in the picture which of these two is Minardi. (Please do not participate in this quiz if you already know that Minardi's nickname was "One-Foot-issimo.")
