Giovanni

Why does Europcar’s rider Giovanni Bernaudeau have an Italian first name?

In 1980 Frenchman Jean-RenĂ© Bernaudeau won a stage of the Giro d’Italia and finished the race fifth overall, and he won the best young rider competition. The race was won by Giovanni Battaglin who left an impression because a little later Bernaudeau named his son Giovanni.

Bernaudeau has said he named Giovanni after Battaglin. Father and son are today united on the same team with Bernaudeau senior as the team owner and Giovanni as a rider.
