“I took a beautiful walk surrounded by an incredible landscape. The adrenaline of when I ran as a professional was different.” This was said by the two-time world champion in cycling and in the 1990 Giro d’Italia Gianni Bugno, who participated today in the 25th edition of the Eroica, the now classic amateur cycle on the white roads of Tuscany, broadcast for the first time this year. live on Rai TV, demonstrating the growing attention to sport cycling turned in sepia: bikes and clothing must in fact date back to no later than 1987, frames in acvciaio, tubulars and external gear levers on the down tube and not, as today, integrated in the handlebar brake levers.

Perhaps looking among the jerseys exhibited at the La Spezia cycling museum, I find one that suits me (Bugno wore the jersey he had won the world championship in Benidorm today, preserved as an heirloom in the La Spezia Cycling Museum, ed). This one I used today will be signed and returned to the Museum “.
