Chiappucci’s Attacks Can’t Crack Indurain

The arrival of Spaniard Miguel Indurain began with a victory in the Tour de France in 1991.  Big Mig came to the 1992 Giro d’Italia to face a group dominate Italian riders. 

After Indurain won the 38 km time trial on stage 3 he gained a decisive advantage on stage 9 on the finishing climb of the Monte Terminillo by dropping all the major GC contenders.  He gained 30” on superior climber Claudio Chiappucci. 

Chiappucci attacked the race leader incessantly on the final climbing stage to Verbania.  Indurain did not crack and matched every move. 

To cap his Giro victory Indurain won the final individual time trial in Milan, catching and passing his 3 minute man Claudio Chiappucci. 

SPECIAL NOTE: Miguel Indurain won the Giro in 1992 to set-up his first Giro/Tour double victory.
