Adriano Zamboni with His Chesini


I like this 1951 photograph of a young Adriano Zamboni with the proud smile familiar to cyclists everywhere. His wool jersey proclaims his is a member of the Sports Club Verona Montoriese. His bike is a Chesini with a Cambio Corsa shifting system (the two shift levers are mounted on the rear chainstay). Later in his career, Zamboni won a stage of the 1961 Giro d'Italia in which he participated 6 times.
