Biography

Sergio Bianchetto is the only cyclist to have won the Olympic tandem competition twice, taking the gold in 1960 and 1964. In Rome, he raced together with Giuseppe Beghetto, beating their German opponents clearly in two heats. Four years later, with Angelo Damiano, he survived a close semi-final against Germany, which was disqualified in the deciding heat of the semi-finals. In Tokyo, he also participated in the individual sprint event, finishing second behind his compatriot Giovanni Pettenella. Earlier, he had won four World Championship medals in the sprint, taking the gold in 1961 and 1962, and recorded a World Record over 200 m (flying start). Bianchetto also took five Italian titles, including one as a professional.
