A tour through Italy

From the north-western part to deep in the southern tip. And back again. 3162 kilometers. In 8 days. Avarage 400 kilometers per day. You wouldn’t even start with a car. And certainly not on a bike… Yet in 1914, 8 riders completed this challenge. Crazy!

In 1934 Learco Guerra won the Maglia Rosa. After finishing his career,
he became an appreciated bike manufacturer and build his own bikes.
On his bikes legendary champions cycled to victory.
But most noteworthy is the victory of the Giro
in 1956 en 1959 by Charly Gaul.
On a steel Learco Guerra!

100 years Fausto Coppi aka Il Campionissimo
1909 – 2019 

A love-hate relationship: cars around the peloton..
At least, let them be stylish,
so we can admire old-fashion Italian brands like Alfa Romeo or Fiat.
Do you remember?

Classico Boretti

Where? Papendal, Arnhem in Holland
When? 11 and 12 May
