Cima Coppi the yearly monument in pro cycling to honor Fausto Coppi

The Cima Coppi is the title given to the highest peak in the yearly running of the Giro d’Italia. The categorization of the Cima Coppi was used for the first time in the 1965 Giro d’Italia. The aim is to honor Fausto Coppi, who won five editions and three mountain classification titles during his career. The Cima Coppi par excellence is the Passo dello Stelvio, which is the highest point ever reached by the Giro d’Italia.

On the Passo dello Stelvio Fausto Coppi has experienced some of his cycling’s finest moments. In 1953 the leader of the Giro d’Italia was the Swiss Hugo Koblet, but the real king was the Stelvio. The stage climbing the Passo dello Stelvio was a severe test, where the Giro and the Maglia Rosa were going to be decided, and Fausto Coppi knew it. He pushed on the pedals, forgetting his 34 years of age, aiming for the top. He won the stage and his fifth and last Giro d’Italia.
