Cyclists Turned Manufacturer: Battaglin

Watched Fabio Aru win the 2015 edition of the Vuelta a Espana earlier today and glanced at past general classification winners at this Grand Tour race. I came across 1981's winner Giovanni Battaglin. Turns out after retirement he founded Battaglin Cicli.

Handsome looking bikes indeed including the retro one.

Aru, for his part, won the race (for those of you interested) riding a Specialized just like his compatriot Vincenzo Nibali did when he won the Tour de France in 2014.

Battaglin bicycles are not without its triumphs. It's a bike tailored for champions in the all to familiar and legendary Made in Italy way.
