In addition, Bugno was 2nd in the 1991 Tour de France behind Miguel Indurain of Spain and 3rd in the 1992 Tour de France behind Miguel Indurain of Spain and Claudio Chiappucci of Italy.
He won the 1990 Giro d’Italia in front of Charly Mottet of France and Marco Giovannetti of Italy, along with the Points Jersey.
In 1990, Bugno won the Milan-San Remo Classic, followed by the San Sebastian Classic in 1991 and the Tour of Flanders Classic in 1994.
