i have read several articles that state mario cipollini barely speaks english. so if that is the case someone please tell me how michael ball has become friends with him? as michael states, "I met him, we hit it off, and no matter what he's become a friend of mine." i doubt it.

chris horner also posted his view to ball's responses, i have never met chris, but I have met michael and I believe horner a thousand times over Mike any day anytime!
