Giro d'Italia Historical Database - Young Guns

Winners of the BEST YOUNG RIDERS Competitions
(White Jersey - Maglia bianca)

This jersey, awarded yearly at the Tour de France, was part of the Giro d'Italia lore from 1976 to 1994, - with a lesser-known rider such as Alfio Vandi and the much more famous Evgueni Berzin claiming the first and last title respectively (the Russian happened to grab also a certain Maglia Rosa that season, by the way ...) - and made its way back to Tour of Italy roads in the past edition, with the Luxembourgian hopeful Andy Schleck as deserving winner of this "minor" classification.
