The Story of the Giro d'Italia

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 great rivalry between Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali is well known, mostly because of their adventures in the Tour de France. But for much of bike racing’s history the Alps have been a high wall and Italian sponsors preferred to keep their racers at home where they could earn valuable publicity.

Because of this, there is a whole world of great athletes who are virtually unknown to the non-Italian cycling fan. How about Giovanni Valetti? In 1939 Valetti beat Bartali when Gino was at the very peak of his powers. Has anyone heard of Giuseppe Enrici, the Giro winner who was born in Pittsburgh? Alfonsina Strada was the only woman who entered (and unofficially finished) a Grand Tour. And there was Giordano Cottur, who won a Giro stage in Trieste while guns blazed. 
Clearly, this is a story that had to be told and it's all in The Story of the Giro d'Italia.

Marco Pantani

On Saturday, May 11, the Giro d'Italia will begin. The first stage will be an 8-kilometer individual time trial in Bologna.

This will be the 106th edition of Italy's Grand Tour, the first edition was held in 1909.

Pictured above is Marco Pantani's famous and dramatic victory at Montecampione in 1998. He went on to win that 1998 Giro and then a few weeks later, won the Tour de France. He was the last rider to do the Giro/Tour double.

The next year he looked to be cruising to another Giro win when he he was found to have an excessively high hematocrit and was booted from the race.

Pantani never recovered from that and went into depression. He became a cocaine addict and was found dead of a cocaine overdose in 2004.

We have results for every stage of ever edition of the Giro d'Italia, plus hundred of photos. You can find it all here.

 

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.
