The place is Imola, Italy. The date is September 1st, 1968. Two big favorites: Merckx and Gimondi. One record breakaway: 9β50β. With an incredible athletic gesture Vittorio Adorni goes solo about 90km before the finish line and wins the World Road Championship with a record that still stands today, after 53 years.

Rigorously made in Italy.
