« Fiorenzo Magni

Born 1920, seen here in his final race, the 1956 Giro d’Italia. This is the 12th of 23 stages. He has broken his collarbone, and is using a tube held between his teeth to exert upward force on the handlebars. Two days after this, he will break his humerus. Some 60 riders, including the leader, will drop out of the race during a snow storm on stage 20; Magni will finish second overall.
