I just read of the passing of famous 1950s-60s Italian cycling champion, Nino Defilippis, today, July 13th, 2010, at 78 years old, after a prolonged battle with Cancer. I am a fan of Nino, known as "Il Cit", because of his participation with the Torpado team in 1954-55. However, he had a long career with several major teams, and rode to multiple stage wins in both the Giro d' Italia and Tour de France, among wins in many other prestigious European races. For Nino's list of palmare`s, see the Wikipedia page devoted to him:

I'll try to post some photo scans of Nino in action, later on today.

Ciao,
