Happy Birthday "Il Campionissimo" Fausto Coppi (1919-1960)

Coppi dominated cycling in the years before and after World War II. He won the Giro d'Italia 5 times, the Tour de France twice, Milan-San Remo 3 times, the Giro di Lombardia 5 times, and had 1 win each at Paris-Roubaix, La Fleche Wallone, and the World Championships. Had his career not be interrupted by World War II, Coppi might have challenged Eddy Merckx as the greatest cyclist of all time.
