Mori clinched the only success of his career in the 2007 Japan Cup, a victory which made him a sports hero in Japan, where Manuele has his own fan clubs.
Many of his admirers study Italian just so they can talk to their idol.
He likes traveling, but he also loves spending free time with his wife and daughter in the lovely Tuscan hills near Pisa.
He is perhaps one of the riders who knows more than anyone about cycling statistics; ask him about the results of any cyclist and you will soon get a correct answer.
