Mario Confente As a Young Racer

While Mario Confente's bikes are very well known in vintage bike circles photographs of him as a racer are rare. My thanks to Gianna Confente, Mario Confente's sister, and Gabriele Alloro from the Comune of Montorio Veronese for making these photographs of a young Mario Confente as a racer available. Please mention the Italian Cycling Journal should you use the photographs.
