Biography

Giuseppe Brambilla (25 October 1888 – 28 April 1918) was an Italian racing cyclist. He participated in the 7th edition of the Tour de France in 1909. In that same year he also won the Coppa del Re and placed second in the Giro dell'Emilia. He also participated in the Giro d'Italia in 1909, 1910, 1911 and 1913, but never finished the race. His participation in the first Giro d'Italia was quite controversial; During the second stage Brambilla was recognised on the train from Ancona to Grottamare while his rivals were riding their bikes. Brambilla had made himself comfortable smoking a cigar! He was disqualified and was in custody while the race continued without him. Still being angry, he used an unguarded moment during the last stage to smirch the car of the jury members.
