As we read on the list, Ernesto Colnago was in San Diego in March for the Granfondo Colnago-San Diego. Several CR members took advantage of the opportunity to meet Ernesto and have him sign all kinds of stuff, including frames.
For 2010 the San Diego will be scheduled again, AND for Philadelphia as the Granfondo Colnago-Philadelphia on August 8th (2010). That's a long way off but hopefully we'll have the same chance to interact with Ernesto that the guys in San Diego had.
