Alfredo Binda, trumpeter

Here we see why Binda was nicknamed “The Trumpeter of Cittiglio” (Trombettiere di Cittiglio). After winning a stage at 1927 Giro d’Italia, to prove he was still fresh after almost eleven hours in the saddle, he took a trumpet from a member of the band playing at the finish and entertained the crowd.
