Bovet Wins in Record Time

Alfredo Bovet

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

Alfredo Bovet broke away from the peloton after the climb of the Turchino Pass and stayed ahead of an elite chase group that included defending M-SR champion Alfredo Binda and 1930 winner Michele Mara.

Alfredo Bovet rode solo 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.
