By Barry Boyce, CyclingRevealed Historian
 

Brunero and Binda

Giovanni Brunero gained nearly 20 minutes on defending champion Alfredo Binda on stages 1 and 2 before Binda won 6 of the next 10 stage.

The highlight of the 1926 Giro was the Binda/Brunero breakaway on stage 7 from Napoli to Foggia. The duo rode to a 25'08 margin over third place and 30 minutes plus of most of the field.

Giovanni Brunero held off a late Binda charge (Binda won 5 of the last 7 stages) and arrived in Milan to claim the grand victory.
