Girardengo Untouchable

Europe was still feeling the effects of WW1 as the Giro d'Italia returned to racing. Sixty-three brave riders started the race in Milan but only fifteen finished the race. Italian superstar Constante Girardengo recorded 7 stage wins (7 of 10 stages) and held the race lead from start to finish.
