1982 🇮🇹 Replica jersey for Giuseppe Saronni - Road World Champion winner in 1982
Replica jersey for Giuseppe Saronni, Road World Champion winner in 1982. The winner of this event earns the right to wear this distinctive "rainbow" jersey as the reigning champion.
Perhaps his most memorable One-Day victory occurred in 1982, when he won the World Championship Road Race in Goodwood, England ahead of Greg Lemond of the United States and Sean Kelly of Ireland.
His final sprint was so impressive that journalists called him La fucilata di Goodwood, “the gunshot of Goodwood”, which came with great solace, as his hopes for winning the gold medal the previous year were thwarted by Freddy Maertens of Belgium during the final sprint.
