Pic of the Day Robic in Italy


Looking very Italian indeed in his pointed-collar Viscontea-Ursus jersey, Frenchman Jean Robic prepares for a stage of the 1950 Giro d'Italia Robic had a double contract in 1950, racing for Thomann while in France and the north, and racing for Riva Sport while in Italy, Switzerland, and the south. The bike is a very Italian mount with it's Cinelli stem and Campagnolo "Paris-Roubaix" rear shifter. Front derailleur looks like a French Simplex, de rigueur for that era. Note how the jersey appears to be a couple sizes to big for the petit Breton.
>From "But et Club" No.236, 29 May 1950.
