tribute tuesdays: mario cipollini

This week, we pay tribute to the "Super Mario", Mario Cipollini.  Highly regarded as one of the greatest sprinters of our time, he is also the most excentric cyclists that I've ever heard of.  I mean come - look at his skin suits.  Look at the him eating sushi during a race.  Look at him smoking on the open road!  The guy is ridiculous, and you wouldn't guess from these photos that he has over 10 Tour de France stage wins or 42 Giro d'Italia stage wins!  I'm not sure where I stand on his place in cycling history, but I hope that these photos continue to accompany it:
