Images from the 21the edition of "Trofeo Pina e Mario Bazzigaluppi" UCI-2.6 sanctioned race, organized by GSC Viris Vigevano and boasting a top-quality international field, that was held in the second half of May 2003 in the Lomellina area of Lombardy.

The race ended in a bunch sprint, won by Pagnoncelli's Paride Grillo, a 21-year-old fastman whose name you'll likely hear many a time in years to come. Race report and results are available here
