Michele Bartoli

His back to back win’s at Liège–Bastogne–Liège in 1997 & 1998 were absolutely ridiculous. He also took the Ronde in 1996. Dude was a baller. This pic is from the Clásica San Sebastián.

The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA
