Giro '62
« on: May 09, 2020, 03:50:19 PM »
Interesting initiative by cycling wear brand Rapha to commemorate the Italian race that should have begun this month. They go back to the 1962 Giro to do a day-to-day reprise of that race. Some nice trivia for cycling buffs (hey, mr. Bond), not least the pics of the riders wearing several stunning "maglias":

The feature is obviously related to the promotion of a Rapha-published book about Franco Balmamion, the guy that won that Giro's edition, a book that looks interesting too for fans of the Golden Age of cycling:
