The 1936 Giro d'Italia was the 24th edition of the Giro d'Italia, a cycling race organized and sponsored by the newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport. The race began on 16 May in Milan with a stage that stretched 161 km (100 mi) to Turin, finishing back in Milan on 7 June after a 248 km (154 mi) stage and total total distance covered of 3,766 km (2,340 mi). The race was won by the Italian rider Gino Bartali of the Legnano team, with fellow Italians Giuseppe Olmo and Severino Canavesi coming in second and third respectively.[1]

Participants[edit]

Of the 89 riders that began the Giro d'Italia on 16 May,[2] 45 of them made it to the finish in Rome on 7 June.[3] Riders were allowed to ride on their own or as a member of a team; 46 riders competed as part of a team, while the remaining 44 competed independently.[2] The seven teams that partook in the race were: Bianchi, Dei, Fréjus, Ganna, Gloria, Legnano, and Maino.[3]

The peloton was composed of only Italian riders due to the political situation involving Italy at the time.[3] The field featured two former Giro d'Italia winners with Costante Girardengo who won the race in 1919 and 1923 and the returning champion Vasco Bergamaschi.[2][3] Other notable Italian riders included Gino Bartali, Giovanni Valetti, and Giuseppe Olmo.[2][3]
