Yesterday morning Team Corratec-Selle Italia released a beautiful video of Valerio Conti, one of the team’s captains. The Roman rider was forced to pull out after a few stages due to a fractured pelvis, but decided to stick around and support his teammates: on the ascent towards Campo Imperatore, on crutches, he cheered on Karel Vacek, who ended up second in the stage.
