Toughest cyclists in the history of pro bike racing
Fiorenzo Magni: The original Lion of Flanders, Magni is most famous for his exploits at the 1956 Giro d’Italia. When he broke his left collarbone in a crash, Magni attached a piece of innertube to his bars that he would grip with his teeth to aid with leverage. As if this wasn’t enough, Magni crashed again, breaking his left humerus and passing out. But Magni came to, climbed out of the ambulance, and finished the stage. He even eventually finished second overall.
