Giro Photos: 1952, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956






Top to bottom:
1952 - The departure of the caravan by the Duomo di Milano
1953 - Fiorenzo Magni wins the last stage in a sprint at the Vigorelli of Milano
1954 - Riders stop to get water on the Bolzano-Sankt Moritz stage
1955 - A phase of the memorable escape of Coppi and Magni on the Trento-San Pellegrino Terme stage.
1956 - Fiorenzo Magni in the San Luca trial, he had broken his collarbone and couldn't pull on the bars so he gripped a length of inner tube in his teeth in order to get leverage (tough man!)


After the Giro we'll get back to "regular programming": everything from A to Z about Italian cycling. Stories, including cycling trip stories, for the Italian Cycling Journal welcome; contact veronaman@gmail.com.
