The Pirate’s real name is Marco Pantani He just likes to be called The Pirate. He is a famous bike racer that races in the tour de France. One time Marco Pantani won on a rainy day and he it was in Paris. It looked like a 10-lap race around the city but would be cut short because of the dangerous rain on the French capitals cobbles. At the same time as the field turned onto the broad tree-lined boulevard, the sun came out and hit straight to the riders. Pantani won that rainy day and he was the first Italian to win the Tour De France since 1965.

They are both great bike riders. They also are good racers that race in the Tour De France. The Pirate died at the age of 34. The Badger is still alive.
