Costante Girardengo was born on March 18, 1893 and died February 9, 1978. The Italian rider won the Giro d'Italia twice (1919 & 1923), the Tour of Lombardy three times (1919, 1921, and 1922), and the Milan-San Remo Classic six times (1918, 1921, 1923, 1925, 1926, 1928), a record which stood until Eddy Merckx broke it in 1976 with seven victories, the current record.
