Frenchmen Sweep the Podium

1911 Giro di Lombardia winner Frenchman Henri Pelissier return to Italy in 1913 with a very strong French team. Controversy marred the finish in Milan when a race official’s car caused the leaders to slow with a few to stop as the sprint was opening up. Missing the confusion a lucky Pelissier quickly jump around the car and sprinted to a 2 second victory. Frenchmen swept the podium with Maurice Brocco (Fra) and Marcel Godivier (Fra) finishing second and third respectively.
