One of the coolest guys in the peloton, Mexican Julio Alberto Pèrez Cuapio. Unfortunately this year the man from Ocotelulco, Tlaxcala, has not been able to repeat the extraordinary performances that helped him gain so many fans in the past two editions of the Italian race.

While Pérez Cuapio is busy, another cool guy from Bruno Reverberi's crew, Giuliano Figueras, is having a good time with former team-mate Vladimir Duma.

Whatever Duma and Figueras said, the latter celebrates starting a dance!! As an amateur the man from Naples clinched the title at the World Military Championships in 1995 and, much more important, became the U23 World Road Champion in October 1996 in Switzerland.
