Ivan Basso

Ivan Basso (born 26 November 1977) was considered among the best climbers in the early 21st century, and was considered one of the strongest stage race riders. He is a double winner of the Giro d’Italia, having won the 2006 edition and the 2010 edition of the Italian Grand Tour whilst riding for Team CSC in 2006 and for Liquigas in 2010. He also finished the 2005 Tour de France in 2nd overall, behind Lance Armstrong (Armstrong’s victories between 1999-2005 are annulled).
