Biography

The Italians dominated the 1960 cycling events, and the 100 km team pursuit with Ottavio Cogliati was no exception. The Italian won comfortably over East Germany. The title earned Cogliati a pro contract, but in his four seasons as a professional he recorded no victories. He later worked as a salesman for a large firm selling alcoholic beverages.
