Biography

As the reigning World Champion in the individual pursuit (not an Olympic event in 1952), Mino De Rossi was a logical member of the Italian pursuit team. The quartet rode to victory with relative ease. After the Games, he again reached the pursuit final at the World Championships, finishing second this time. He then turned professional, and embarked on a long career both on the road and the track. He was mostly successful at six day events, winning twice (Buenos Aires 1959, Montréal 1963). As an amateur, De Rossi also broke the World hour Record, setting it at 42.481 km in 1950.
