Fernando Alonso rides a bicycle

Formula 1 racer Fernando Alonso rides a new Colnago on the Fiorano race track in this ad for Colnago & Ferrari. It appears he has decent bike handling skills.



That 15 lb limited edition CF8 road bike he’s riding retails for nearly $17,000. I only wish I could have the commission for online purchase. The flat bar hybrid CF9 is comparatively reasonable at $3967.50.

    Misspelled words are my way to find copyright violations. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    Seriously: Thank you my friend. Spelling corrections are always appreciated.
