Un Campionato del Mondo (1977), un Giro d’Italia (1984), una Milano-Sanremo (1984), due Lombardia (1975-1978), tre Paris-Roubaix di fila (1978-1979-1980), cinque Trofeo Baracchi, etc. etc. etc. Tanti auguri Sceriffo.
After 43 years of support at the Tour de France(the French wheel-builder has provided support for all Tour riders since 1977)this will be the first year without the iconic yellow neutral service cars on the roads of the Tour de France and other major races organized by ASO like Paris-Roubaix and Liege-Bastogne-Liege. Yellow was a color, yellow was a mark, yellow was a symbol. Yellow was part of the history of French races. This is the end of a legendary, yellow magic era.

On August 9, 1969, shortly after midnight SHARON TATE was brutally murdered with 16 stab wounds by a female member of the “Charles Manson family“.She was 26 years old, eight and a half months pregnant and married to ROMAN POLANSKI.For me a fascinating pop icon, a very good actress and a wonderful model, able to be absolutely chic in jeans or wearing her favorite designer RUDY GERNREICH. She was really unique and considered one of the most beautiful woman of her generation. We will love her style and her sophisticated natural beauty forever! © Sharon Tate – Recollection – Debra Tate
