Carlo Oriani (5 November 1888 – 3 December 1917) was an Italian professional road racing cyclist. The highlight of his career was his overall win in the 1913 Giro d'Italia.[1] He died in the aftermath of the Battle of Caporetto from pneumonia contracted as a result of diving into the icy waters of the Tagliamento river to save a fellow retreating soldier.<ref name=“Giro d’Italia by Colin O’Brien”>
