Ivan Basso Autobiography: "In Salita Controvento"
Ivan Basso has released his first autobiography "In Salita Controvento" (approximate translation: Uphill Against the Wind). The book, which is available only in Italian, was written in collaboration with journalist Francesco Caielli .
Basso won the U23 World Championship in 1998, and the Giro d'Italia in 2006 and 2010. He skipped this year's Giro in order to focus on the Tour de France.
Basso was involved in the Operation Puerto doping scandal for which he received a ban in 2007.
