Tour de France 2000, stage Carpentras-Mont Ventoux. Two giants of Provence. In my hall of fame! © L’Équipe – Tour de France 100 ans
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.
The new silk carré aspen ’86 fresh designed for the Italian brand superleggero is my personal tribute to the Coors Classic, a race held in North America between 1975 and 1988.The race was considered the fourth biggest stage race on the world cycling calendar after the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta.From a 3-day of racing in Colorado in the first years, the race grew to 2 weeks with stages across Nevada, Colorado, California, many of them criterium races or time trials like the time-trial hill climb up to San Francisco’s famous Telegraph Hill.
