He often made me laugh, with his sayings. He will be rembered as someone who brought colour and flair to the peleton. And one of the greatest climbers of all time.

I have spent the last few weeks on the computrainer watching the 1995 and 1998 Tour de France tapes and the 1998 Giro and now this. It's just hard to believe and imagine what he went through to get to that point. While Armstrong has inspired me dealing with life's travails, Pantani inspired me on the bike more than anyone. I loved to watch him climb.

Peace at last. It's terrible that he's gone, but he suffers no more. In my life I have seen 3 great rides that stand above all others. Merckx in 69 on the 4 cols in the Pyrenees when he destroyed the whole field; Lemond in 89 when he won on the Champs Elysee; lastly Marco in 98 on the Galibier in the rain when he took flight to beat Ulrich.
There have been 2 great tragedies for me: Simpson on the Ventoux in 67 and now this. It's a terrible blow for the sport.
Marco Pantani was a throwback to another era. The world looks very grey this morning.
