Franco Bitossi won 147 pro races including the 1968 Tour de France Points, 3-times Giro d'Italia King of the Mountains and the Giro Sprinters' competition. One of the most complete riders to have ever turned a pedal.

"There was a beautiful sun but I felt some drops hitting me. He was not drinking so it could not be water. He was very focused on speeding up on the descent! So I thought it was sweat.

Then at the finish my masseur asked me if I had crashed...I was covered with blood! Simpson's blood... I still can't get that day out of my mind."
