Gaetano Belloni

Gaetano Belloni

Gaetano Belloni (26 August 1892 – 9 January 1980) was an Italian cyclist. He won the 1920 Giro d’Italia, the Milan-San Remo twice (1917, 1920) and the Giro di Lombardia (Currently Il Lombardia) three-time (1915, 1918, 1928). He won a total of 43 races as a professional, including 12 stages at Giro d’Italia.

In the 1920s Belloni constantly rivalled with his friend Costante Girardengo, being almost always defeated and gaining for this reason the nickname of “L’eterno secondo” (“The eternal second”).
