Brunero's Repeat Victory after an Early Problem

Defending champion Giovanni Brunero finished the 326 km stage 1 in 12h34'17, well ahead of a Gaetano Belloni led chase group. Brunero was later relegated and assessed a 25 minute time penalty for rules infractions. Undaunted Brunero slowly chipped away at the lead through the middle stages and used several long breakaways and a 4 stage rampage into Milan for the victory. Bartolomeo Aimo finished second 12'29 behind.
