Gimondi and Anquetil: a Great Rivalry

Felice Gimondi start the 50th edition of the Giro d’Italia with bronchitis. He struggled with a fast early pace of the Giro, “I had problems staying with the main challenges early in the race,” said Gimondi.

SPECIAL NOTE: Stage 19 the uphill finish to Tre Cime di Lavaredo was annulled for a irregularities. The controversy stemmed from the high number of riders being pushed up the climb. Stage winner Felice Gimondi was one of those riders. *

Jacques Anquetil (Fra) provided Gimondi the inspiration to excel.  Anquetil took the race lead on the four-mountain stage 20, just three stages from the finish in Milan. The Frenchman finished 7th on the stage and gained over 6 minutes on Gimondi. But the Italian fought back the next day on the climb of the Tonale. At the finish in Tirano Gimondi had taken back over 4 minutes and took the Maglia Rosa off Anquetil’s back.

Felice Gimondi held onto the race lead and rode into Milan for the 1967 Giro d’Italia victory.

SPECIAL NOTE: a young Eddy Merckx raced in his first Giro. Merckx scored 2 stage wins, finished 9th overall and 2nd in the Points Competition.

SPECIAL NOTE: Starting in 1967 the Points Classification leader was give a Red Jersey .
