Pantani X. Yes, confirmation exists, this will be the 10th edition of the internationally esteemed Pantani ride. Date is set: Sunday, February 15th, 2015 at 11 AM ET.
There will be so much press surrounding this event over the next 7 weeks that I can barely scratch the tip of the big ring with this first post on the matter. But as we head into the Santazon Holiday, remember this: The Pantani is hard. Fast, sinewy men and women are already training. You still suck. So go light on the whiskey sours between now and New Years if you know what's good for you (eggnog), and get ready for my wife to drop you going up the steep part of brokenback when the going gets crampy.
Lastly, I'll leave you with this little unsolicited prediction of greatness.
Up, up, up.
