A 45 minute document on Milan-Sanremo by Wilfried de Jong. It was on Dutch TV last night.

It’s in Dutch but if you don’t understand, don’t worry, it’s worth it for the images and archive video. Don’t turn the sound off as there’s English audio from interviews and the Italians add to the atmosphere too.

Mondory

It’s 7.22pm on the eve of Milan-Sanremo. Earlier today I was listening to a podcast radio show during which someone explained they asked aloud “for a sign” that a relative of theirs was safe. She explained when she did this suddenly a dog would bark or something else would happen and she’d take comfort from these “signs”.

My mind wandered and I thought OK and asked aloud for a sign as to who would win Milan-Sanremo. No dog barked but within about 20 seconds a van overtook me with “Mondory” written on the side.

Ag2r’s Lloyd Mondory starts Milan-Sanremo tomorrow with the number 25 on his back.

This is such a coincidence that if by some freak event Mondory were to win tomorrow nobody would be believe the tale. So here is the timestamp just in case.
