Il Velodromo Vigorelli has been one of the holy temples of cycling for most of the 20th century
All the greatest had raced here during the 6 Giorni where the bleachers were overflowing with people
It’s smacked in the middle of the city of Milan, close to what was the hub for the buzzing economic boom of the 60’s, la Fiera Campionaria
In 1985 a massive snow storm had part of the rood collapse on the precious Swedish wood planks, destroying the silken track
It has never been restored since
