I found a few images from a trip I made to the Church/ shrine of the Madonna del Ghisallo with Sportful and Tinkoff Saxo a few years back.

I remember standing next to an old lady praying in the chapel and when she stopped she turned and said to me 'that was my nephew's bike' pointing to a racer on the wall. When she turned and walked out i leaned over to see it was Fabio Casartelli's road bike. It was a memorable moment indeed. To think too, a decade later I would be living in the shadow of the same mountain range that claimed him.

More pics and a few words here:

Again, more great pics, thanks! I was there in 98, the museum wasn't built then and it was just the chapel rammed full of all sorts of stuff. I'd really like to get back one day

Thanks. It was a pretty brutal climb up to it i seem to remember (for the others, I was in a Tinkoff Saxo car eating a cake).
