Now that's it. On this Valentine's Day, Sergio Maggini hits the three digit. He's 100. I can see now report that he's passed away, so would like to wish a happy birthday to this "young" man.  :cool

Herbie Sykes tweeted this picture four years ago on which he's congratulated by Fiorenzo Magni (191 years between themselves) !!



"Magni with Sergio Maggini. Three top-ten finishes at Milan-Sanremo, alive and well aged 96."

Sergio Maggini also won the Baracchi Trophy in 1947 when it was still an ITT but with an all Italian field, Milan-Turin in 1948, the Tour of Piedmont in 1946 and a stage at the Tour of Italy in 1949.

His younger brother Luciano who passed away in 2012 had a broader palmares winning 5 stages at the Tour of Italy, Milan-Turin, Tour of Emily, etc and finishing at a best place of 5th at Tour of Italy GC.

Hopefully next July, Émile Idée will join Sergio Maggini at the three digit club.  :)
