Are you sure this video is Sir Michael Cotty? @michael.cotty My guide around Lugano sounded like him, but stayed seated the whole ride, except for around 1:30 on the final summit. And when he commanded “Up! Up! Up!”, this guide was referring to RPM and not for me to get out of the saddle.
Quite an enjoyable ride, though, and looking forward to the next two.
