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.
