Bovet Wins in Record Time

Milan-San Remo in 1932 was run under cloudy skies and into a strong headwind across the plains of Lombardia. The premes awarded in the villages along the plains kept the paces high.

Alfredo Bovet broke away from the peloton after the climb of the Turchino Pass and rode across the finish line in San Remo 3 minutes ahead of defending champion Alfredo Binda. Bovet's winning time set a new record with an average speed of 34.432 km/h.
