Hampsten '88 | Cycling Art Print
The Gavia is one of the Dolomites most feared roads. In 1988 the Giro d’Italia returned for the first time in nearly thirty years, with the weather worsening and the riders threatening to strike.
One by one, they begged Andy Hampsten not to attack. So he rode solo into the teeth of the blizzard, taking the Maglia Rosa he would keep until Milan and becoming the first US rider to win Italy’s grand tour.
