The Ghisallo challenge and Fausto Coppi’s bike


Thanks to the bicycle, moreover, you can reach beautiful and remote places, difficult to travel by car, or routes that are too long to be covered on foot. The two wheels, however, are also synonymous with challenge: enthusiasts know something about it who still remember the head to head between the great Coppi and Bartali, champions of sport and honesty. An emblematic place of these pedal battles is the famous ascent of Ghisallo, a unique place for enthusiasts, where there is a monument dedicated to the two great cyclists, a museum and a small church that houses precious treasures.

This time Nino and Camilla, the two protagonists of the collection In the footsteps of the abbot, discover the story of a sporting rivalry which, however, had a great friendship as a background: that between Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali.
The two boys will know their story thanks to a special gift: a bicycle that belonged to a cycling ace who, after half a century, returns to racing on the streets of Lecco and transforms a dream into reality.
At the center of the story, there is a full-brain boy and a full-bodied bully, whose rivalry will lead to an apparently unbalanced duel but which will hold great surprises: who will win this challenge on the Ghisallo climb?
