2013 Giro d'Italia: Col du Galibier, Stage 15
All these ingredients will give fans the spectacle of one of the most dramatic stages ever – a stage that promises to remain in the history of the Giro d’Italia forever.
The Galibier recalls, among its rulers, giants like Henri Pélissier and Eugène Christophe, a flea Vicente Trueba ("the Flea of the Pyrenees"), an eagle Federico Bahamontes ("the Eagle of Toledo") , the angel Charly Gaul ("the Angel of the Mountain") and a cannibal (" the Cannibal ") in Eddy Merckx. Among the Italians, the winners have been Bartolomeo Aimo in 1924, Francesco Camusso in '32, Gino Bartali in '37, in '38 Mario Vicini, Fermo Camellini in '47, in '52 Fausto Coppi, Franco Chioccioli in '92, Marco Pantani in '98, and Stefano Garzelli in 2003.
