Fausto Coppi, Signed Press Photo, 1953 World Chamionships


Beautiful Signed Press Photo of Fausto Coppi at the 1953 Worlds in Lugano Switzerland

Fausto was the dominant cyclist in the Peloton after the Second World War. His many victories earned him the title Il Campionissimo (“Champion of Champions”). He was an all-around racing cyclist: he excelled in both climbing and time trialing and was also a great sprinter. He won the Giro d’Italia five times (1940, 1947, 1949, 1952, 1953), the Tour de France twice (1949 and 1952), and the World Championship in 1953. Other notable results include winning the Giro di Lombardia five times, the Milan–San Remo three times, as well as wins at Paris–Roubaix and La Flèche Wallonne and setting the hour record (45.798 km) in 1942.
