2013 World Champ Mascot Is Pinocchio?

by editors on October 26, 2012

PinnocioOrganizers of the 2013 World Cycling Championships say their choice of Pinocchio has nothing to do with the recent USADA indictment of the BLOAT (a.k.a. Biggest Liar of All Time) and that it is simply a historical figure, according to a story on Velonews.

“Ours is a Pinocchio connected to his origins, happy, athletic and attentive,” according to the official website of the 2013 world championships. “He is looking at the horizon, expressing an optimistic attitude versus the future. The expression of his face is smiling, happy, positive and at the same time astonished.”

Apparently, the Italian have no sense of irony. Wouldn’t it be better just to embrace it?
