Il Giro d'Italia

Felice Gimondi nel 1967

The wonderful stunning climb to the Tre Cime di Lavaredo with its finishing line at the Auronzo Refuge represents one of the most memorable laps of the Giro d'Italia (Italian bike competition). The final 7 Km uphill stretch from Misurina (1760 m. o.s.l.) to the alpine refuge (2333 m. o.s.l.) climbs up dramatically in the last 4 Kms with a 477 m. gain in height.

The Italian competition took place here for the 1st time in 1967 to celebrate the enlargement of the 1st World War Military Road and the race was cancelled because of some irregularities.
Felice Gimondi would have won with 4” on Merckx and 6” on Motta.
The following year Eddy Merckx wins and wears here the pink jersey. In 1974 the Spanish José Manuel Fuente wins with 1'18” lead over Baronchelli and Merckx, the latter bravely defending his pink jersey and gaining the last of his 5th Italian bike races.

In 1981 the Swiss Breat Breu wins the race; Battaglin takes the pink jersey away from Contini and winning the time trial race from Soave to Verona becomes the 1st Italian bike race winner from the Veneto region.
