Departure and arrival at Monza, 241 kilometers, it rains from mid-race until the end. A classic route that winds through the upper Lombardy. “A very hard race, in the final kilometers we remained Chiappucci and I, he didn’t pull and then on the Lissolo I attacked him and I made the last 15 kilometers up to Monza alone. It was raining a lot, it felt like night on arrival. Rain and cold never scared me. At one point in the race I found myself together with Gianni Bugno (who was wearing the rainbow jersey conquered in Benidorm a few days before) I told him let’s go Gianni, he hesitated and I left. That’s better because when Bugno was in the mood it was very hard to beat. ” When Rominger can say goodbye to his mentor Ernesto Colnago like today (Thursday 10th October) is happy. He still keeps himself in shape, riding (not too much) and having fun in the gym, not bad for a former 58-year-old champion.
