Fiorenzo Magni, The Lion of Flanders, Cycling legend dies at 91


So sad to hear this news. My friend of fellow cohort Ivo was here at the shop yesterday talking with Sig. Magni as we were discussing the delivery of his custom bike to the Museo di Ghisallo next week, a day that  was to be dedicated to presenting his biography: Magni, Il Terzo Uomo (Magni, the Third Man), authored by Auro Bulbarelli. Magni brought us the best of modern, post-war cycling and his spirited combat with Coppi and Bartali will be remembered forever as well as his decisive grit and determination taking him to mulitple GC victories in the Giro d’Italia and Tours of Flanders. We will miss you Fiorenzo!
