Today’s giro stage will finish in Tortona, the place where Fausto Coppi died in 1960 at the age of only 40.
His close relatives could hardly believe the fact he died. Like his loyal friend and soigneur Biagio Cavanna. Never again would he feel the power of Fausto’s mighty quadriseps in his hands. The fact that Biago was blind pushed the myth of Fausto’s legs to an even greater height!
