A belated happy birthday to Italo Zilioli, who was born on September 24, 1941.

The Italian rider is best known for his podium finishes in the Giro d’Italia, finishing in 2nd place in the 1964, 1965 and 1966 races behind Jacques Anquetil, Vittorio Adorni and Gianni Motta respectively. 

Zilioli also finished third in the 1969 Italian Grand Tour behind fellow Italians Felice Gimondi and Claudio Michelotto.

In addition, Zilioli achieved numerous victories in many lesser-known races throughout Italy during his career, such as Giro del Veneto, Giro dell’Appennino, Rimaggio, Tre Valli Varesine, Giro dell’Emilia, Coppa Ugo Agostoni, Coppa Sabatini, Giro del Veneto, GP Monaco, Rennec, Nice-Mont Agel, Caen (with Franco Balmamion), Giro del Ticino, Gran Premio Industria e Commerce di Prato, Züri-Metzgete, Giro di Campania, Giro del Piemonte, Setmana Catalana de Ciclisme, GP Cecina, Trofeo Laigueglia, Tirreno–Adriatico, Montereau, Giro dell’Appennino, Coppa Placci, GP Montelupo and the GP Cecina.

Zilioli also has one Tour de France stage victory to his credit as well, after winning stage 2 in the 1970 race.

Zilioli currently lives in the province of Cuneo (Piedmont) and is annually involved with the start of each year’s Giro d’Italia.

Un buon compleanno in ritardo Italo!
