Yesterday, cyclists gathered in Albino, Italy, for a charity football match in the stadium of AlbinoLeffe, a Serie B team, to help raise money in a telethon. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, up to five hundred people responded and helped raise €1500 for a research foundation.
Clouds and cold weather near Bergamo did not stop some of the stars from cycling's present and past go head-to-head AlbinoLeffe players. Cyclists who participated and lent there name to a good cause included Claudio Chiappucci, Mariano Piccoli, Mario Scirea, Ivan Gotti, Gian Matteo Fagnini, Eddy Mazzoleni, Wladimir Belli and Mirko Celestino.
