New York times, 25 October 2014: "A race against time," p. D8 (L'Eroica is a celebration of Italy's rich cycling and cultural heritage. This year's event was dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Gino Bartali, who won the Tour de France in 1938 and 1948, and helped rescue Jews in Italy during World War II by hiding falsified documents in the saddle of his bike.)
Wikipedia, 27 October 2014 (Gino Bartali, Cavaliere di Gran Croce OMRI (born 18 July 1914, near Florence, Italy; died 5 May 2000, Florence, Italy), was a champion road cyclist. He was the most renowned Italian cyclist before the Second World War, having won the Giro d'Italia three times (1936, 1937, 1946) and the Tour de France twice, in 1938 and 1948. His second and last Tour de France victory in 1948 gave him the largest gap between victories in the race. In September 2013, 13 years after his death, Bartali was recognised as a "Righteous Among the Nations" by Yad Vashem for his efforts to aid Jews during World War II.)
