But more story's where written with this bike.
In 2011 there was Firenze-Modena. A tribute to the first Giro-stage won by Fausto Coppi in 1940.
Normal on 2 june the Italian National celebration day. But 2 june in 2011 was on the same day as Ascension Day. Also a important day in Italy.
So they moved the event and for me it was no longer possible to take place on the start line in Firenze.
But my Italian friends did a great job and special for me and my Ducth cycling buddy they organized an extra edition. What a great friends!
The original graphic from 1940. Route was exact the same!!!!
Start on the velodrome in Firenze. The Coppi was ready for it.
Velo Club Modena delivered the supporting car (great bike at the back
But even a great bike can have a puncture. I did the photo so Giuseppe can do the wheel
During one of the climbs
Coppi monument on the passo Abetone
Coppi in Italy= GOD. So more monuments..........
Our Italian friends did a great job
Not only Coppi but some other Italian hero was on the route
Crossing the Apennines is great
Special jersey for this special day
