Cipo was a character, with some amazing quotes to the press. One of my personal favourites being (after winning one of the fastest stage in Tour de France history) `I am like an old car which consumes too much, so they are leaving me in the garage.` - classic stuff!

The team`s headline sponsor Saeco - made coffee machines - and although Cipo was not the first to have a `Red Train` (Rik Van Looy was although his was called the `Red Guard`) this nickname was popular with fans not old enough to remember Van Looy. With good reason; the riders assited Cipollini into a winning position in over sixty races in three years!

The 1995 version of the Saeco/Pinarello team jersey is available to view in our collection.
