The 1960 Giro d'Italia was the 43rd running of the Giro d'Italia, one of cycling's Grand Tour races. The Giro started in Rome, on 19 May, with a 215 km (133.6 mi) stage and concluded in Milan, on 9 June, with a 225 km (139.8 mi) leg. A total of 140 riders from 14 teams entered the 21-stage race, which was won by Frenchman Jacques Anquetil of the Helyett team. The second and third places were taken by Italian Gastone Nencini and Luxembourgian Charly Gaul, respectively.[1][2][3][4][5]

Fourteen teams were invited by the race organizers to participate in the 1960 edition of the Giro d'Italia.[6] Each team sent a squad of ten riders, which meant that the race started with a peloton of 140 cyclists.[6] From the riders that began the race, 97 made it to the finish in Florence.[7][8][9][10][11]

The race route was revealed on 13 April 1960.[13][14][15][16] The start of the race was moved to Rome to honor the Summer Olympics to be held in the city later that year.[17] Before the race began in Rome, the organizers honored the race's first organizer Armando Cougnet [it], five-time Giro champion Fausto Coppi, and journalist Orio Vergani [it], all of whom died before the race started in 1960.[17] President Giovanni Gronchi officially opened the race.[17]

Classification leadership

One jersey was worn during the 1960 Giro d'Italia. The leader of the general classification – calculated by adding the stage finish times of each rider – wore a pink jersey. This classification is the most important of the race, and its winner is considered as the winner of the Giro.[19]

The mountains classification leader. The climbs were ranked in first and second categories. In this ranking, points were won by reaching the summit of a climb ahead of other cyclists. There were three categories of mountains. The first category awarded 80, 60, 40, 30, and 20 points,[20] while the second distributed 60, 40, and 20 points.[21] Although no jersey was awarded, there was also one classification for the teams, in which the teams were awarded points for their rider's performance during the stages.[22]
