Florio - original Motogiro and Milano-Taranto works rider

I've met a lot of people around bikes in my time, but Florio Monti is still the best person I have interviewed, and I return to the set of shots I took of him at his workshop in Tuscany often. I was so proud to have him at my wedding, as we all rode in to the church together. He's living history and absolutely fascinating. At 90, he still goes out jogging every day, and continues rides his bikes. He rode in all the big road races in Italy in the 1940s and 1950s, and has some stories to tell.

What a great guy! Hope I am still riding at that age.
