Vacansoleil-DCM to pay Coppi tribute
The great Fausto Coppi will be honoured at the Giro di Lombardia this weekend when Vacansoleil-DCM wear a special team shirt.
Coppi was a five-time winner in Lombardy, the last triumph of which came in 1954, and Vacansoleil-DCM will pay homage to the Italian on Saturday.
The Dutch team have already paid tribute to Coppi during the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia - as the Italian won both grand tours in 1952.
Vacansoleil-DCM will introduce the 'celeste Lombardia kit' on Thursday before presenting it to the chapel and museum of Madonna del Ghisallo on Friday.
