What kind of person uses doping? It’s a weakness in somebody who looks for tricks and frills.

The case of Aru: Seneca said 'Difficulties strengthen the mind, as labor does the body"
The injury that prevented Aru from participating in the Giro is one of those situations in which resilience becomes a precious instrument to be able to get back in the field after a forced stop. This holds true not only for injuries but for other situations as well.
Davide Cassani: “Encourage your kids to take on cycling. They will learn the values of effort and sacrifice and be taught the art of resilience.”
The Giro d’Italia is a great occasion for everybody. It is like a magnet attracting the curiosity of many passionate adults and a mass of television spectators who remain hypnotized by the heroic feats of the athletes. The Giro d’Italia is also a great occasion for the young. It provides an opportunity for them to be captured by an intuition, to be conquered by this sport and start their journey.
