Vladimir Poulnikov was the winner of the 1987 Settimana Bergamasca.

Poulnikov raced as a professional from 1989 to 1998. Poulminov’s best results include a 4th place overall in the 1990 Giro d’Italia, a 10th overall place at the Tour de France in 1993 and 1994, and a second-place overall at the 1994 Tour de Suisse and the stage victory in the Giro.

Settimana Ciclistica Bergamasca (also know as Settimana Lombardia) was first held in 1970.  Up until 1987, the race was amateur-only.  After a break in 1988, the race was re-launched as a pro-am event and boasts such winners as Thibaut Pinot (2011), Pavel Tonkov (1992), and Danilo Di Luca (2008) among many more.  Sadly the race was last held in 2013.

This jersey was purchased directly from the Augusto Gotti family and was part of the collection in the legendary Bar Augusto in Villa d’Alme, Italy.  Bar Augusto was a key host to professional and amateur cycling teams from the 1960s through the 1980s.
