Colnago Ottanta5 presentation

From Colnago Ottanta5 presentation. The guy next to Ernesto Colnago is Giuseppe “Beppe” Saronni, former UCI World Champion (1982) and twice Giro d’Italia winner (1979 and 1983). While winning the UCI Worlds 1982, his final sprint was so impressive that it gained him the nickname of “Goodwood rifle-shot”. More than forty years have passed since they collaborated for the first time. Now, The existing Lampre-Merida team will be taken over by Chinese company TJ Sport Consultation and continue to be managed by Giuseppe Saronni (who used to race aboard Colnago bikes when he was a professional), marking the first involvement of a Chinese company in WorldTour cycling. The team will use Colnago bikes: Ernesto Colnago signed a four-year deal with TJ Sport Consultation.
