Last year the race was won by Daniele Nardello, who came in ahead of Zanini, Jalabert, Casagrande & Bartoli. Here is a list of the recent winners: 1990 Gianetti (Svi), 1991 Cassani (Ita), 1992 Bugno (Ita), 1993 Sorensen (Dan), 1994 Fra. Casagrande (Ita), 1995 Zanini (Ita), 1996 Nardello (Ita).
This was also the race where in 1995 Marco Pantani almost lost his life in an accident that kept him from cycling in 1996. Two other cyclists were badly hurt in that accident where a sport utility vehicle was allowed on the course by police.
