Former Italian rider dies

Former Italian cyclist Annibale Brasola died Friday, according to the ANSA news agency. Brasola, 76, was a leading support rider of two of the most legendary names in Italian cycling, Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali. His brother Elio, who died some years ago, was also a top rider. Brasola, who was born in Padua, had some successes of his own, too, with 16 wins including three Giro d'Italia stages, most notably the Campobasso to Naples run in the 1950 race. Copyright AFP 2001
