    Thanks to Jussi Veikkanen!!!

    Team Zoncolan would like to express our warmest thanks to Jussi Veikkanen for the bottles he gave us at Alpe di Pampeago and Passo dello Stelvio.

    Jussi is one of the greatest Monte Zoncolan killers ever!!!

    The bottle in the picture is from the Passo dello Stelvio (about 3.2km before finish line).
