Fausto Coppi his first prize

Fausto Coppi was the first pro cyclist ever wining the Giro d’Italia and Tour de France in the same year, 1949. It all started when he was finally able to buy his first racing bike for 570 Lire back in 1935, a real Maino. He wasn’t an instant champion, ending often in the back of the peloton or even abandoning the race. In 1938 Coppi won his first victory in Castletto d’Orba, not far from his birthplace Castellania. The first prize was an alarm clock, which he gave to his mother.
