I wasn't sure whether to pop this up here or the MTB section as there are both in it but I put a selection of prototype Colnago MTBs up already as a thread of their own here:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=303740&p=2273123&hilit=colnago#p2273123

So, this being more road orientated can sit here i suppose.

This was the time I visited with food poisoning and collapsed on the museum's marble floor and Ernesto put me up on his sofa and called his doc for me. So I didn't really make many photographs, but here's a selection of what I sort of remember seeing.

I put a story up on this on my site if you have any interest at all but here's the glut of the imagery I think anyway. The Mona Lisa and the Pope make an appearance.

Here:

Anyway, enjoy the pics. Not sure they'll rush to ask me back, but we remain mates. :-).

And a photograph of me sick as a dog on Ernesto's gaudy gold legged sofa kindly snapped by a dear friend at Campagnolo. ;-) Note bin provided just in case. Thoughtful bunch my Nago pals. :-)

That is awesome.
Sorry to hear of your sickness, but it makes for great anecdotes.

It made for a not so great Sarcky nickname known across the Italian cycle industry for a while too. :-(

You well mate?

That is one way to ensure Ernesto remembers you!
You still took a good range of pictures, including proof that some carbon fibre frames are still made in Italy.

Thanks,

David
