Biography

Dino Verzini was a top track sprinter for Italy in the late 1960s and early 1980s. Verzini was Italian champion in the sprint in 1966 and 1968, placing fifth that year in the Olympic sprint race. In 1965 he won the Italian tandem sprint title with Ceradini, while in 1967 he won the Italian and World Championships in the tandem with Bruno Gonzato. After placing second at the 1969 Italian Championships with Gonzato, Verzini switched partners several times, finishing second again in the 1970 Italian Championships, with Gianni Sartori, behind Giorgio Rossi and Francesco Del Zio. In 1971 Verzini and Ferruccio Ferro placed second in the tandem sprint at the 1971 Italians, while Verzini won the Italian title in 1972 with Ezio Cardi, before placing ninth that year at the Olympics, this time with Rossi. In 1977, Verzini also placed third in the Italian professional sprint championship, riding as a pro only briefly. His father, Tullio Verzini, was a top cyclist, competing in the Giro d’Italia three times – 1926 and 1928-29, and placing 20th at the 1926 Giro de Lombardia. Verzini later founded the company Nuova Tandem, which makes welding and mechanical supplies, mostly for use on lift trucks.
