Italy at Paris-Brest-Paris
Italy was well represented at Paris-Brest-Paris ("PBP"), the 1,200 km endurance test that riders must complete in 90 hours. Organized every four years by the host, Audax Club Parisien, Paris-Brest-Paris Randonneur is the oldest bicycling event still run on a regular basis on the open road.

Separately, Rapha has four stories here about this year's PBP.
