A New Generation of Italian Champions

The 1935 Giro d'Italia saw a “changing of the guard”. Vasco Bergamaschi, riding for the very powerful Maino-Girardengo team, had 2 stage wins and held off a late charge from Giuseppe Olmo to gain the victory in Milan .

Neo-Pro Gino Bartali, riding in support of teammate Giuseppe Martano, was the revelation of the race. Bartali, while helping Frejus teammate Giuseppe Martano to a second place finish overall, had the first Giro stage win of his storied career and won the Mountain Classification.

An aging Campionissimo Alfredo Binda had four second place stage finishes, but finished the Giro in 16th place more than 31 minutes behind Bergamaschi. 1935 Binda passed the torch to Bartali, who was destined for greatness.
