During our time here last year we learned that the fan club HQ for pro cyclist Paolo Tiralongo (from nearby Avola) was in Siracusa. Despite repeated attempts Larry was unable to find it. But yesterday while running some errands in the section of town known as the "borgata" he stumbled upon it, right where he looked last year! It's in a sports clothing shop, but this time they had huge photos of Tiralongo in the window, unlike last year, when every time he went by the place was closed. This time they were open and happily gave Larry the posters you can see here and said Paolo's currently in Argentina racing in the Tour of San Luis. The last time Larry saw Paolo was here, where after the stage he zipped past on the descent to find the team bus.
