1988 Giro D’Italia Parma, Italy (The start of the famous GAVIA stage)..
The following set of photographs was sent to me by my friend Bill Cordero. They are amazing and were taken at the start of the stage that included the famous Gavia climb. The stage was won by Erik Breukink. Andy Hampsten finished second and won the pink jersey that day. It’s amazing to see the relative calm and nice weather that met the riders at the beginning of this renowned day in the Giro d’Italia. Bill’s other photographs can be seen on his Flickr page here…. They are great and deserve a good visit. Thanks Bill for letting me use these images.
