Biography

Gianni Motta

Gianni Motta (born 13 March 1943) is an Italian former bicycle racer who won the 1966 Giro d'Italia.

Gianni Motta was born at Cassano d'Adda (Lombardy). His main victories include the Giro d'Italia (1966), a Giro di Lombardia (1964), a Tour de Suisse (1967) and two Tour de Romandie (1966, 1971).

Like many before him, he turned to manufacture and sales of bicycles after his racing career.

While at Molteni in 1968 Motta tested positive for a banned substance and his results in the 1968 Giro d'Italia were removed.
