Giuseppe Pancera Slideshow

Giuseppe Pancera was second in the 1928 Giro d'Italia and the 1929 Tour de France. He was an outstanding rider in an era where the conditions could only be described as brutal. The roads were usually dirt, often with deep potholes. Frames and forks broke regularly. Mud was a constant menace. Bikes were single-speed and the brakes were a joke.

You can read about Pancera and his career in our rider history section.

Here is a slideshow of a selection of photos that Pancera's daughter Egidia Barbetta kindly sent me to share with BikeRaceInfo readers. The pictures are also posted as gallery of stills
