Giro d’Italia, 1956. Fiorenzo Magni, riding with a broken collarbone after a crash on stage 12, tied a piece of inner tube to his bars and gripped it between his teeth to help steady the bike.

He wasn’t steady enough to avoid another crash on stage 16, in which he landed on the broken collarbone and also broke his arm.

Nonetheless, Magni completed the remaining six stages and finished second overall.
