Say hello to Guido Trenti

The Boston Globe | Lead man Trenti is up front about role in Tour

Not to correct USA Cycling, but There are 8.5 US citizens in the Tour field this year. That last half is provided by Quick Step's Guido Trenti, who holds dual US and Italian citizenship, and has ridden for the US at the world championships.

The Boston Globe profiles Trenti, who has earned his keep at Quick Step this week, serving as the lead-out man for double stage-winner Tom Boonen. It's Trenti's first appearance at the Tour de France, but he's made 5 starts each in the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta a España.

I am an amature cyclist and watch the tour de france with a lot of enthusiasm. I noticed this Guido Trenti placing 4th on a stage a few days ago and became interested in who he was because our last names are almost the same. So I will be following him now. Good luck in the tour.
