One Stage Wonder

Italian Antonio Pesenti broke away from the race leader early on stage 7 and won the 280 km stage in Foggia. The over 16 minute time gain on German Herman Buse was enough to give Pesenti the race lead and coveted Maglia Rosa. Antonio Pesenti rode into Milan on stage 13 to claim the overall Giro victory in 1932.
