Answers to the End Of Year Contest, 2007

The question was: Name the regions of Italy from which winners of the Giro d'Italia have come from, and the total number of victories attributed to each region.

The tie break question was: Name the southern most region that a winner of the Giro d'Italia was from.

The answers appeared in the Gazzette dello Sport, the sponsor of the Giro:
26 Lombardia
5 Binda
3 Gimondi
2 Galetti, Gotti, Savoldelli
1 Ganna, Oriani, Belloni, Pesenti, Guerra, Bergamaschi, Motta, Bertoglio, Visentini, Bugno, Garzelli, Basso

19 Piedmonte
5 Coppi
3 Brunero

3 Trento-AltoAdige
2 Simoni
1 Moser

2 Veneto

Abruzzo is the southern most region where a winner has come from, and that was just last year (2007).
