By Barry Boyce, CyclingRevealed Historian
 

Baldini Untouchable…

1958 was the year of Ercole Baldini.  The Italian had 4 stage wins, 2 strong individual time trials and 2 mountain-top finishes in the Dolomite Mountains.  Ercole Baldini was not seriously challenged and rode into Milan to gain the 1958 Giro d’Italia victory. 

SPECIAL NOTE: Later that year Baldini won the World Road Race championship in front of Frenchmen Louison Bobet and Andre Darrigade.
