Trento - Day 2 in Canazei
Our second morning provided rain. We had arranged to ride with
Mirko, a waiter in our hotel who was friendly, spoke good English, and
apparently was a Saeco fan. However, after sitting in the garage
chatting and watching water fall from the sky for an hour and thirty minutes,
we opted to drive into Trento in search of the Moser - Simoni bike shop
and other adventures.

waiter in the Hotel Faloria (Canazei).
The Moser - Simoni bike shop is great. It has a decent selection of
cycling clothing, and more importantly, cases full of trophies, jerseys, and
other memorabilia from the careers of Francesco Moser and Gilberto Simoni.
We met Arianna Simoni - Gilberto's wife - at the shop and got our
pictures taken with her!
I just had to sample som Esta THE - its one of the big Giro sponsors.
Ed and Fred attempt to obtain diesel from a pump at a station outside
of Trento. Highly entertaining stuff.
