Fausto Coppi - Il Campionissimo.

Bartali's rivalry with Fausto Coppi divided Italy. Bartali, conservative, was venerated in the rural, agrarian south, while Coppi, more worldly, secular, innovative in diet and training, was hero of the industrial north.

Fausto Coppi "The Campionissimo" (1919-1960, Ital) - Coppi won his first major victory in 1940 at the age of 20 and his last in 1954 at the age of 35.
