Thanks Bob,

I can't remember the guy's name but he was a domestique for Coppi. Bob and Rita Freitas made friends with him last year. He'll fill in the details when he gets home.

I can't tell you anything about the other dude. Just a guy I snapped a picture of.

I'll add some captions to the photos in the next few days.

Regards, Jamie
