Giuseppe Saronni - 1981 - GIS Gelati - Italian National Champion
This gorgeous jersey worn by Giuseppe Saronni during the start of the 1981 season after his win of the National Road Championship title the year before.
Gis Gelati was an Italian professional cycling team that was active between 1978 and 1991. It was headquartered in Giulianova, Abruzzo.
The tri-colour jersey is the distinctive jersey worn by the "Champion of Italy" in a particular discipline of cycling. The mesh is composed of three horizontal coloured bands around the chest. From top to bottom the colours are: green, white and red.
Widely regarded as a stand-out design by the designers and collectors interviewed in the new book "Pro Cycling Style" by Oliver Knight and Three Back Pockets. It’s difficult to define what exactly makes this one stand-out - the inclusion of team and kit sponsor branding from GIS Gelati @campagnolosrl and @castellicycling proving a sublime combination. An iconic gorgeous wool jersey in fantastic condition!
