10th Giro di Lombardia 1914 (Italy)


By Barry Boyce, CyclingRevealed Historian



Italian Teammates Sprint for the Victory

World War 1 engulfed most of Europe in the fall of 1914 as the Giro di Lombardia started in Milan on October 25, 1914. The War did limit the field to Italians with only 44 riders at the start.

Lauro Bordin rode prominently in a 7 rider breakaway (one of the breakaway riders was a young Costante Girardengo) and sprinted past teammate Giuseppe Azzini in the final meters to gain the Lombardia victory.
