Molteni cycling team
The Molteni Cycling Team wasn’t famous because of the Molteni salami that was produced in the Arcore region of Italy. The team owes its fame to the 663 races that were won from 1958 to 1976. Gianni Motta and Marino Basso had respectively 48 and 34 wins, but Eddy Merckx was of course the wolverine of the team.
Molteni Eddy Merckx
In 1971 the 25-year-old Eddy Merckx joined the team. The Faema cycling team ceases to exist and Merckx decides with 8 other riders and staff-members to make the switch to Molteni. It turned out to be a well-oiled machine and Merckx started his journey of triumph. He acquired the nickname “The Cannibal. During his time at Molteni, he breaks the world hour record in Mexico and becomes 2 times World Champion road race. The rainbow colors on the cuffs are an ode to the greatest cyclist ever.
