4 June 1965 The “Cima Coppi” of Giro d’Italia Was Introduced

Every year the highest peak of the Giro d’Italia is called “Cima Coppi”, in honour of the great cyclist Fausto Coppi (1919-1960).

In the inauguration year, the highest peak of the route was Passo dello Stelvio. The race was a real spectacle due to the heavy snowfall.

Graziano Battistini crossed the finish line first on that memorable day.
