Binda Battles Piemontesi

All 12 stages of the 1928 Giro d'Italia were dominated by both Alfredo Binda and Domenico Piemontesi. Daily the two battled, Binda had 6 stage wins to Piemontesi's 5 wins. However, the close overall classification was blown apart on the 323 km stage 8 from Rome to Pistoia, when a Binda led a breakaway group that gained over 6 minutes on Piemontesi.

Alfredo Binda rolled into Milan on stage 12 to gain his 2nd consecutive and 3rd overall Giro d'Italia victory.

SPECIAL NOTE: again in 1928 the start list set a record for number of starters. There were 266 starters in 1927 and 298 in 1928.
