It was everyone for themselves on the way down. We were just surviving. I was on my bike crying on the descent. I don’t ever feel sorry for myself, but it was one of the moments when — apart from being a commando and doing extremely hard things — I have never suffered so hard in my life. - Dag Otto Lauritzen recounting the descent of the Passo di Gavia at the 1988 Giro d'Italia.
