50th Anniversary of the death of the Campionissimo.

Sept.15, 1919-Jan.2, 1960.

The Giro's Thursday stage 5 will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Fausto Coppi's death. As the riders' pass close to the birthplace and burial place, Castellania. There's still a certain emotional pull for all cycling fans, myself included, for our campionissimo!
