Bartali climbing

This is the last of the 1948 photo's for now. When I find some more I will go back to this great race by Bartali but I'd like to go back to pre-war Bartali to see what this champion could have given us were there not a war, even though he single-handedly stopped a civil war in his hom country of Italy. Here he can be seen ridng with his Italian teammates although I'm not quite sure who they are, if anyone knows I'd really appreciate it if you posted a comment, I take the guess based on the fact that they all seem to have the same jersey.
