Meet Fioravanti Baggio

Here’s a photograph from the May 4 1934 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a cyclist who had sustained notable bruises after a six-day event.

Fioravante Baggio does not have a Wikipedia page, but I did find this entry for him on a cycling website. He immigrated to Canada in 1929, and he finished second in a six-day event in Vancouver in 1934. He passed away in Montreal in 1991.

There is also a Rua Fioravante Baggio in Curitiba, Puerto Rico. I have no idea if this street is named after the cyclist.
