While the article is in Italian, the news is interesting.

Bicycle sales (for 2011) are holding steady at around 1.75 million bikes sold (as per the Italian Bicycle Makers Association), with only a slight decline in production in Italy to 1.48 million bikes, and an increase in exports of 8.8%.

So not growing? That's coz Ivan failed to win the Giro.
I wonder how the sales are going in Pongo?
