At the Bergamo born in Sedrina Gimondi was already an accomplished as an amateur rider, including gains in the tour de l'Avenir. He broke completely with the pros in his debut year in 1965 when he as debutant the tour of France to his name wrote. Gimondi won the tour of Italy; something he could repeat in 1969 and 1976. In 1968 he also won the tour of Spain, with which he is one of the six riders who has won all three Grand Tours . The other five are Jacques AnquetilEddy MerckxBernard Hinault,Alberto Contador and Vincenzo Nibali. Gimondi, nicknamed ' the Buzzard of Bergamo ' and ' Aristocrat ', finished all five times he took part in the tour of France in the top 10. Its lowest ranking was a seventh place and he won a total of seven tour stages.

Gimondi drove not only strong in the Grand Tours, but he was also a specialist in one-day matches. He twice won the tour of Lombardy (1966 and 1973). Paris-Roubaix(1966) and Milan-San Remo (1974) he once put on his palmares. In 1973, Gimondi world champion.

In 1975 he got at the tour of France a time penalty of 10 minutes in the general classification, because he tested positive during the 15th stage. In addition, he was given a fine of 1000 Swiss francs and one month conditional suspension.
