Aldo Moser (1934 - 2 December 2020)
has passed away due to Covid -19.

Aldo was a pro cyclist from 1954-74. he was a regular high finisher in the Giro
and had two spells in the Maglia Rosa - in 1958 and thirteen years later in 1971.
he rode the Giro 16 (!) times and 5 Vueltas but never made it to the Tour.

Not a prolific winner of races, Aldo won several semi classics but never won a Giro stage.
he won the GP de Nations in 1959 which was for decades considered the TT World
Championships until the 1990's - a sign of things to come from his brother Francesco.
Aldo also twice won another important defunct event the Coppa Baracchi a two man
TT event which was important until the 80's when it rapidly fell out of favour.

Morto Aldo Moser per Covid. Corse con Coppi e col fratello Francesco

Aldo Moser (procyclingstats.com detailed career results)

Aldo was the first of the Moser cycling dynasty from Palu di Giovo, a village in Trentino.
hailing from a family of 12, his three younger brothers were also cyclists mostly notably
Francesco (b. 1951) who was one of Italy's greatest.
Three Moser nephews were also pros and two time Giro winner Gilberto Simoni (b. 1971)
who also grew up in the village, is a cousin.

Alejandro 'Alex' Sabella (1954 - 8 December 2020)
Sabella died of heart problems aged 66.
following the 1978 World Cup in Argentina after Spurs promptly signed Ardiles and Villa,
a flurry of South Americans joined English clubs where foreign players were almost unknown.
Second Division Sheffield Utd inquired about 17 year old Maradona and when quoted
400,000 opted to sign Alejandro Sabella instead from River Plate for 160,000.
'Alex' was a big success at Bramall Lane in midfield and is still considered a great of the club.
after the club suffered an unprecedented relegation to Division 3 while plagued with debt,
Sabella was sold to Leeds for 600,000 in 1980 but was much less notable at Elland Road.
he was one a series of poor signings that eventually led to Leeds' relegation in 1982 by
which time he had returned home w/ Estudiantes. There under Carlos Bilardo he won
more national tiles to add to those he won with River.
When Bilardo became Argentina manager Sabella won all 8 caps of his caps from 1983-84.
he closed out his career with spells in Brazil w/ Gremio, another season at Estudiantes,
Ferro Carril Oeste and Irapauto (Mexico).

Initially often working as an assistant to Daniel Passarella, Sabella became boss of
Estudiantes and promptly coached them to the 2009 Copa Libertadores.
in 2011 he became national coach and led Argentina to defeat in the 2014 World Cup Final.
Sabella then left the job as he had promised before the tournament.

in 2014 an English biography of Sabella was published (primarily aimed at Blades fans).
Like Osvaldo Ardiles, Sabella was a law student before football proved to be his calling.
