Daily Question # 789

Who ? Why  the  attire ?

Italian  cyclist  Mario  Cipollini .

In  the  1999  Tour  de  France , Cipollini  lead  the  peloton  in  the  fastest  stage  in  the  history  of  TDF . He  ( and  his  team  Saeco ) dressed  up  in  Roman  attire  to  celebrate  Cipollini  winning  4  consecutive  stages ( stages  4-7 ) thereby  setting  a  post-WW II  record  , and  also  to  celebrate  Julius  Caesar’s  birthday .

Only  Yadhu  got  the  4  consecutive  stage  wins  funda . However , I’ll  be  good  and  award  points  to  Rishav , Appu , Subin , Rithwik , Bobby , Nakul  and  Jyotishraj  as  well .
