Claudio Chiappucci - El Diablo

Born in 1963, Claudio Chiappucci is originally from Uboldo, in the province of Varese, Lombardy, where he was born on February 28th under the sign of Pisces. Everyone knows him with the nickname of El Diablo, for the determination, strength and tenacity he has always used in sport. Since he was a child he has always had a passion for the world of wheels and especially for the bicycle and so as a child his parents decided to give him one. The beginnings of Claudio Chiappucci were in the second category and date back to 1982, when he was just 21 years old. The transition to the world of professionalism came only after, in 1985. In 1991 and 1992 he got the polka dot jersey in the Tour de France as the best climber, as well as the equivalent green jersey in the Giro d'Italia in 1990, in 1992 and in 1993. He then won the Milan-Sanremo in 1991 and the Clásica of San Sebastián in 1993. He finished second in the World Cycling Championship in 1994. He retired in 2000. Since his retirement today, El Diablo is always at the forefront as a testimonial, guest of honor, organizer, and not just in cycling, his visibility is perhaps greater today than in the professional period!
