FRANCO BITOSSI - WILD HORSE
“It would have been my masterpiece,” said Franco Bitossi of his near miss at the 1972 World Championships in Gap, France. Narrowly beaten to the line by fellow Italian Marino Basso, he later claimed that one mistimed gear change on an incline cost him victory. Did he regret the decisions he made during the last kilometres of that race? Not at all. In fact, he’s been heard to call it his Gioconda – literally, his Mona Lisa. His unpredictable style of riding earned Bitossi the nickname ‘Wild Horse’. Bitossi is celebrated in the cap for the Rapha Mobile Clubhouse Europe.
