1 Fausto Coppi ( ) From Saturday July 5th to Sunday July 27th, 2014, the 101st Tour de France will take place. This year it is made up of 21 stages and will cover a total distance of 3,664 kilometers (roughly 2,277 miles). It will begin in the United Kingdom (in Leeds), and will go through Belgium, Spain, and France before ending on the Champs-Élysées in Paris on July 27. Last July, Alla Corrente described the cycling exploits of one of Italy s greatest cyclists, Gino Bartali ( ). It also described his other role during World War II as a courier/spy for the Italian resistance, and his efforts to save Jews during the Italian Holocaust and German occupation. Since this is the July 2014 Bulletin and since there is much interest among Cenacolisti about the Tour, I thought it would be appropriate to offer this Alla Corrente about another Italian participant in several Tour races who won it in 1949 and in Fausto Coppi was an Italian cyclist and the major challenger to Gino Bartali in many cycling races, including the Tour de France. His successes earned him the title Il Campionissimo, or Champion of Champions. He was an all-round racing cyclist, excelling in both climbing and time trials, as well as being a great sprinter. Coppi was one of five children born to Domenico Coppi and Angiolina Boveri. Fausto was the fourth child, born September 15, 1919 in Castellania, Piedmont, Italy. His mother wanted to call him Angelo, but his father preferred Fausto; so he was named Angelo Fausto, but was known most of his life as Fausto. Coppi was sickly as a child and showed little interest in school. In 1927 he was punished for missing school by writing numerous times I ought to be at school, not riding my bicycle after skipping classes to spend the day riding a family bike which he had found in a cellar, rusty and without brake blocks. He left school at age 13 to work for Domenico Merlani, a butcher in Novi Ligure. Cycling to and from the shop and often meeting cyclists who came through the town, he became interested in racing. The money to buy a bike came from his uncle and his father. He rode his first race at age 15, with other boys not attached to cycling clubs, and won first prize: 20 lire and a salami sandwich! He got a racing license at the start of 1938 and won his first race, at Castelleto d Orba, near the butcher s shop. He was the sole winner and won an alarm clock for the victory. A regular customer at the butcher s shop in Novi Ligure was a former boxer who had become a masseur for a bike-racing team, a job that he could do after he lost his sight in Giuseppe Cavanna was known to friends as Biagio. Coppi met him that year, recommended by another of Cavanna s riders. Cavanna suggested in 1939 that Coppi should become an independent, a class of semi-professionals who could ride against both amateurs and professionals. He sent Coppi to the Tour of Tuscany that April with the advice: Follow Gino Bartali! Coppi was forced to stop with a broken wheel. But at Varzi on May 7, 1939 he won one of the races that counted in the season-long national independent championship. He finished seven minutes ahead of the field and won his next race by six minutes.
2 His first large success was in 1940, when he won the Giro d Italia at the age of 20. In 1942 he set a world hour record ( km [28.46 miles] at the Velodromo Vigorelli in Milan) that stood for 14 years until it was broken by Jacques Anquetil in Coppi s career was then interrupted by the Second World War. In 1946, following the war, he resumed racing and achieved remarkable successes. The veteran writer Pierre Chany said that from 1946 to 1954, once Coppi had broken away from the peloton, the peloton never saw him again. Twice, 1949 and 1952, Coppi won the Giro d Italia and the Tour de France in the same year, the first cyclist to win both races in the same year twice. Ultimately, he won the Giro five times, a record shared with Alfredo Binda and Eddy Merckx. During the 1949 Giro he led Gino Bartali by 11 minutes between Cuneo and Pinerolo. Coppi won the 1949 Tour de France by almost half an hour over everyone except Bartali. In that race, from the start of the mountains in the Pyrenees to their end in the Alps, Coppi took back the 55 minutes that Jacques Marinelli had led him going into the mountains. Coppi won the Giro di Lombardia a record five times (1946, 1947, 1948, 1949 and 1954). He won Milan San Remo three times (1946, 1948 and 1949). (In the 1946 Milan San Remo he attacked with nine others 5 km [3.1 miles] into the race of 292 km [181.4 miles]. He surpassed the others on the Turchino climb and ultimately won by 14 minutes). He also won Paris Roubaix and La Flèche Wallonne (1950). He was also 1953 World Road Champion. In the 1952 Tour de France, Coppi won on the Alpe d Huez that had been included for the first time that year. He attacked 6 km [3.72 miles] from the summit to rid himself of the French rider, Jean Robic. Coppi said: I knew he was no longer there when I couldn t hear his breathing any more or the sound of his tyres on the road behind me. Coppi won the Tour by 28 minutes 27 seconds and the organiser, Jacques Goddet, had to double the prizes for lower placings to keep other riders interested. It was his last Tour, having ridden three and won two. Coppi and Bartali Rivalry Coppi s racing days are generally referred to as the beginning of the golden years of cycle racing. Italy, traumatized by World War II, looked to sports heroes for its victories after years of military defeat. Coppi s battle with another great rider, Gino Bartali, was the stuff of legend. The two men battled through the Giro d Italia, Tour de France and numerous one-day classics in an epic struggle for athletic superiority and the hearts of Italy. More often than not Coppi came out on top and, perhaps crucially for his legacy, travelled further and wider than Bartali in search of fame and glory. Bartali preferred to race mainly in Italy, eschewing the northern European classic races. When, in 1950, Coppi secured the notable double wins of Paris-Roubaix and La Fleche Wallone, he delighted first-hand the northern European crowds who had waited patiently to see him win in the flesh and also proved his versatility. Coppi also won more Giros than Bartali (five wins to three) and matched his success in the Tour de France (two wins each).
3 Partly because of his more numerous international appearances and successes, contrasted with Bartali s insularity, the Italian media were able to create two very different personae. In one corner you had Coppi: cosmopolitan, innovative in his methods, urbane and representative of the economically and industrially progressive north. In the other corner there was Bartali: deeply religious, conservative in attitude, relatively uninterested in life and competition outside Italy and a man who cherished his roots in the rural, traditionalist south of the country. The contrast between the two men polarized the Italian tifosi (fans), dividing them into Coppiani and Bartaliani. The writer Curzio Malaparte said: Bartali belongs to those who believe in tradition he is a metaphysical man protected by the saints. Coppi has nobody in heaven to take care of him. His manager, his masseur, have no wings. He is alone, alone on a bicycle Bartali prays while he is pedalling: the rational Cartesian and sceptical Coppi is filled with doubts, believes only in his body, his motor. Their lives came together on January 7, 1940 when Eberardo Pavesi, head of the Legnano team, brought the 20-year-old Coppi to ride with Bartali on the team. Their rivalry started when Coppi, who was supposed to play the role of the helping hand, won the Giro and Bartali, the star who was supposed to win, marshalled the team to chase but finished behind Coppi. By the 1948 World Championship at Valkenburg in the Netherlands, both climbed off rather than help the other. The Italian cycling association said: They have forgotten to honour the Italian prestige they represent. Thinking only of their personal rivalry, they abandoned the race, to the approbation of all sportsmen. Because of this, they were suspended for three months. The rivalry partly broke when they both shared a bottle on the Col d Izoard in the 1952 Tour, but the two fell out again arguing over who had offered it. I did, Bartali insisted. He never gave me anything. Their rivalry was the subject of intense coverage and resulted in epic races. Coppi joined the 38th Infantry of the Italian army when Italy entered World War II. Officers favored him at first in order to keep him riding his bike. However, in March, 1943 they sent him to North Africa where he was taken prisoner by the British between Mateur and Medjez-el-Bab on April 13, He was kept in a prisoner-of-war camp, where he shared plates with the father of Claudio Chiappucci, who rode the Tour in the 1990s. The British moved Coppi to an RAF base at Caserta, Italy in There he worked for an officer who had never heard of him. Coppi was allowed liberal terms of confinement since the war was essentially over. On his release, he cycled and hitched rides to his home. On Sunday July 8, 1945, he won the Circuit of the Aces in Milan after four years of being away from racing. The following season he won the Milan San Remo race. Although he was a great athlete, he was fragile physically. Coppi possessed a massive rib cage and an exceptional heart, but had a delicate skeleton which contrasted with his well-developed thighs. His brittle bones were the result of malnutrition as a boy. He had over twenty serious bone fractures including collar bones, pelvis, femur and a displaced vertebra. He also had a sensitive stomach and picked up numerous illnesses during his career.
4 Coppi and Drugs Coppi was often said to have introduced modern methods to cycling, particularly his diet. Bartali established that some of those methods included taking drugs, which were not then against the rules. Bartali took to raiding Coppi s room before races: The first thing was to make sure I always stayed at the same hotel for a race, and to have the room next to his so I could mount a surveillance. I would watch him leave with his mates, then I would tiptoe into the room which ten seconds earlier had been his headquarters. I would rush to the waste bin and the bedside table, go through the bottles, flasks, phials, tubes, cartons, boxes, suppositories I swept up everything. I became so expert in interpreting all these pharmaceuticals that I could predict how Fausto would behave during the course of the stage. I would work out, according to the traces of the products I found, how and when he would attack me. Bartali and Coppi appeared on television revues and sang together, Bartali singing about The drugs you used to take as he looked at Coppi. Coppi spoke of the subject in a television interview: Question: Do cyclists take la bomba (amphetamine)? Answer: Yes, and those who claim otherwise, it s not worth talking to them about cycling. Question: And you, did you take la bomba? Answer: Yes. Whenever it was necessary. Question: And when was it necessary? Answer: Almost all the time! Coppi set the pace in drug-taking, said his contemporary, the Dutchman Wim van Est. Rik van Steenbergen said Coppi was the first I knew who took drugs. However, his own drug-taking didn t stop Coppi s protesting against others using it. He told René de Latour: What is the good of having world champions if those boys are worn out before turning professional? Maybe the officials are proud to come back with a rainbow jersey, but if this is done at the expense of the boys futures, then I say it s wrong. Do you think it normal that our best amateurs become nothing but gregari? Coppi named four riders among the best in the world as amateurs but who failed as professionals because of their taking drugs, despite great predictions made for them. If they sue me for defamation, he said, all the better. The facts will be brought to light and this may mean a change in our methods.
5 Coppi and the Mystery Woman in White The Woman in White was Giulia Occhini, described by the French broadcaster Jean-Paul Ollivier as strikingly beautiful with thick chestnut hair divided into enormous plaits. She was married to an army captain, Enrico Locatelli, and had two young children. Coppi was married at the time to Bruna Ciampolini. Locatelli was a cycling fan; however his wife was not, but she joined him on August 8, 1948 to see the Tre Valli Varesine race. Their car was caught beside Coppi s in a traffic jam. That evening Giulia went to Coppi s hotel and asked for a photograph. He wrote With friendship to..., asked her name and then added it. From then on the two spent more and more time together. Italy was a socially conservative country at the time and adultery was still a criminal offense in the 1950s. In 1954, Giulia was seen waiting for Coppi at the end of a race in St-Moritz. She and Coppi hugged and La Stampa printed a picture in which she was described as la dama in bianco di Fausto Coppi ( the woman in white with Fausto Coppi ). It took only a while to find out who this mystery woman was. Giulia and Coppi moved in together, but so great was the scandal that the landlord of their apartment in Tortona demanded that they move out. Reporters pursued them to a hotel in Casteletto d Orba and again they moved, ultimately buying the Villa Carla, a house near Novi Ligure. There police raided them at night to see if they were sharing a bed. Pope Pius XII asked Coppi to return to his wife. The pontiff refused to bless the Giro d Italia when Coppi rode in it until he returned to her. Coppi refused, so the Pope then went through the Italian cycling federation. Its president, Bartolo Paschetta, wrote Coppi on July 8, 1954: Dear Fausto, yesterday evening St. Peter made it known to me that the news [of adultery] had caused him great pain. Still, Coppi resisted returning to his wife. Finally, in 1955, Coppi and Giulia were arrested and put on trial for adultery. Both received suspended jail sentences. The two eventually got married and had a son (Faustino) together, but neither the marriage nor their son was officially recognized by the Italian authorities, since Coppi s wife, Bruna Ciampolini, had refused a divorce. To end a marriage was shameful and still illegal in some parts of Italy at the time. Coppi was shunned and spectators spat at him. Decline and Death Coppi s career declined after the scandal. He had already been hit in 1951 by the death of his younger brother, Serse Coppi, who had crashed in a sprint in the Giro del Piemonte and died of a cerebral hemorrhage five days before the start of the 1951 Tour de France. Coppi competed in the Tour, although still in mourning, and finished in 10th place. He could never match his old successes. Pierre Chany said he was first to be dropped each day in the Vuelta a España in Criterium organizers frequently cut their races to 45 km (27.96 miles) to be certain that Coppi could finish, he said. Physically, he wouldn t have been able to ride even 10km (6.2 miles) further. He charged himself [took drugs] before every race. Chany said that Coppi was a magnificent and grotesque washout of a man, ironical towards himself; nothing except the warmth of simple friendship
6 could penetrate his melancholia. But I m talking of the end of his career. The last year! In 1959! I m not talking about the great era. In 1959, he wasn t a racing cyclist any more. He was just clinging on [il tentait de sauver les meubles]. Jacques Goddet wrote in an appreciation of Coppi s career in L Équipe: We would like to have cried out to him Stop! And as nobody dared to, destiny took care of it. In December 1959, the president of Burkina Faso, Maurice Yaméogo, invited Coppi and other European cyclists to ride against local riders in Burkino Faso, Africa and then go hunting. One of the cyclists, Raphaël Géminiani, later recalled: I slept in the same room as Coppi in a house infested by mosquitos. I d got used to them but Coppi hadn t. Well, when I say we slept, that s an overstatement. It was like the safari had been brought forward several hours, except that for the moment we were hunting mosquitos. Coppi was swiping at them with a towel. Right then, of course, I had no clue of what the tragic consequences of that night would be. Ten times, twenty times, I told Fausto Do what I m doing and get your head under the sheets; they can t bite you there. Both caught malaria and fell ill when they got home. Géminiani said: My temperature got to 41.6 celsius [106 Fahrenheit]... I was delirious and I couldn t stop talking. I imagined or maybe saw people all round but I didn t recognise anyone. The doctor treated me for hepatitis, then for yellow fever, finally for typhoid. Geminiani was diagnosed with plasmodium falciparum, one of the more fatal strains of malaria. He recovered but Coppi died, his doctors mis-diagnosing his illness as a bronchial problem. La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian daily sports paper, published a Coppi supplement. Even though Coppi was an atheist, the editor wrote that he prayed that God would soon send another Coppi. Legacy The Giro remembers Coppi as it goes through the mountain stages. A mountain bonus, called the Cima Coppi, is awarded to the first rider who reaches the Giro s highest summit. In 1999, Coppi placed second in balloting for greatest Italian athlete of the 20th century.
