Has anybody heard of Gino Bartali?

A friend of a friend ended up restoring his car.

The book written about him called 'Road to Valor' was excellent. It tells the story of how he smuggled documents in his bike frame throughout Nazi controlled Italy during WWII.

Thanks for the video. Really great to watch.

"Road to Valor" was a great book.

It is as much about pre and post WWII Italy as it is about Bartali.

His stage wins and overall victory in the 1948 Tour de France played a significant part in uniting Italy which was at the brink of civil war.

I have a copy if anyone wants to read it. Text 678.462.6698 and it is yours.
