Gino Bartali’s Secret

Written and illustrated by Kike Ibáñez

His heart was beating like never before, he was sweating more than usual although it was not due to physical effort. He was scared, he was scared that the soldiers would search the bike and discover his secret.  Fortunately, they just wanted his autograph and the cyclist was saved again. This is the story of Gino Bartali. A Tuscan who won his first Giro d’Italia in 1936 at the age of twenty-two. He had a promising future but Benito Mussolini used sport as propaganda in favor of the regime, that’s why he forced Bartali to compete in the Tour of 1938. The outbreak of WWII ended all sports competitions, but Gino kept on training and his mission was to cycle from Florence to Assisi where the safe-passage papers were printed.  From Assisi, hidden in his bicycle, Bartali carried the documents, stopped only to sign dedications. Thanks to thousands of kilometers over a bicycle, Gino managed to save lives, almost eight hundred and most of them children. He was a talent born in the right time.
