Into this new world, Italian bike maker Battaglin rolled out a radical time trial bike for the prologue of the 1985 Giro d'Italia. Not only did it have an aerodynamic, monocoque frame, but its super-wide, bulbous front wheel acted as a fairing to shield the rider's feet from the wind. That rider was Roberto Visintini and he'd been going three seconds per kilometre faster in training on the new bike. Giovanni Battaglin tells the tale of what happened next.
