Giro d'Italia

The Giro d'Italia is one of the world's most important and popular bicycle races, yet there is almost no information in English about this magical Italian race's rich past. With The Story of the Giro d'Italia, the fabulous history of Italy's national tour is at last available. Volume One takes the story of the Giro from its origin as a desperate promotional gamble by a nearly broke newspaper to Eddy Merckx's convincing 1970 victory.

The Story of the Giro d'Italia, Volume 1 is available in print, Kindle eBook and audiobook.You can get your copy in any of these versions by clicking here.

Greg LEmond and Gianni Bugno

From the 1990 Tour de France, stage 11. Here Gianni Bugno (right) barely beats Greg LeMond at the top of L'Alpe d'Huez. Eric Breukink finished a second behind the duo. LeMond is wearing the rainbow jersey of the world road champion

At this point, LeMond's teammate Ronan Pensec was the Yellow Jersey.

Later Claudio Chiappucci took the lead with LeMond trailing him by five seconds.

LeMond took the lead for good in the penultimate stage, a 45.5 kilometer time trial.

As for Gianni Bugno, in the 1990s, he was one of racing's dominant riders. In 1990 he won not only Milano-San Remo, he took the lead in that year's Giro d'Italia and held it to the end. That incredible feat had then been accomplished by only Costante Girardengo, Alfredo Binda and Eddy Merckx. Fine company, indeed.

Bugno also won two sequential world championships (1991 & 1992), San Sebastian, Tour of Flanders and countless other races.

What you'll find in our site:

The Tour de France. Lots of information, including results for every single stage of every Tour.

Other important bike races: the Giro d'Italia, the Vuelta a España, along with the classics, stage races, national championships, world records, and olympics.

We keep a running record of the races going on in the current year, with results, photos, maps, etc. We've been doing this since 2001, so the results for this year as well as previous years are available here.

This site is owned and run by McGann Publishing. We're a micro-publisher specializing in books about cycling history. Interested? Here's information on our titles in print.

We are devoted to cycling and all of its characters and events. The sport's past matters to us. We've been interviewing anyone who will sit down and talk to us, then writing up the interviews, and collecting other stories about cycling. We have rider histories—the stories of individual riders, many by the great cycling writer Owen Mulholland. We have our oral history project—the results of our interviews. And we've collected lots of photos over the years, of racers, racing, manufacturing, etc., which we have arranged into photo galleries for your enjoyment.

Being in the bike business for many years, we had to opportunity to travel a lot in Europe, riding bikes, attending trade shows, etc. We've written up many of our travels, and had some contributions from others whose travels differed from ours.

What would the day be without the funnies? Our friend Francesca Paoletti has drawn a series of comics about bike related stuff, poking fun at us along the way.

If you are interested in bikes, sooner or later you will want to know some technical information about bikes. We have articles here about bike weight, how bike frames are prepped and assembled, selected bike parts, and others.

And then there's food! The bicycle runs on the human engine, and the human engine runs on food, so of course we're interested in that.

Along the way we've been privileged to meet many people in and around the bike business who do things we like. The folks whose ads are up there on the right are friends of ours who we believe conduct their business knowledgably and honorably; here are a few others who do stuff we like.
