It’s Josef Zimovčák, tenfold world champion in riding high bicycle and endowment fund „On bike for children“ founder (www.nakoledetem.cz). Watch the video from stage 16 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUU-dQ7nZbM. And here’s the poster to his Giro 2014: http://www.nakoledetem.cz/sites/default/files/letak_giro_2014_en.pdf.
