Thanks to Niels Bjornsteen Captain, Squadra Molteni
for the accurate information.
The facts are: In 1973, the European Community, which originally consisted of the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and France, was extended to three countries: Denmark, England and Ireland. Therefore, the Giro d'Italia chose to make a Giro that celebrates Europe by laying the route so it ran through 7 countries: Belgium, Holland, Germany, Luxenburg, France, Switzerland and Italy. That's why there are the 7 flags on Maglia Rosa Giro 1973.
It was a very successful Giro for the Cannibale as he won with more than 7 minutes ahead of Gimondi, triumphed in 6 stages, and even took the points classification.
Even more impressing is that he led the general classification from start till finish, so he remains the only rider that ever wore this special jersey, wearing it during each stage of that Giro.
European countries may add taxes depending on the local code.
