In memory of the Grande Torino

The collar of the Maglia Rosa holds one of this year’s significant new features – a quote on a maroon background paying homage to the Invincible champions, going ‘Grande Torino 1949 – Only fate could beat them‘. On 4 May, exactly 75 years after the Superga disaster, the Giro d’Italia will also be paying tribute to the ‘granata’ team.
