Biemme was founded in 1978 by Maurizio Bertinato and over the years Biemme has sponsored a number of professional teams including Panasonic, Telekom, Gewiss Ballan, Le Groupment and Lotto.

When I first started in cycling (late 1980's), Biemme were always on the clothing rail of the local bike shop and were omnipresent in the often lengthy Geoffery Butler Cycles adverts that used to grace the pages of Cycling Weekly.

A cursory glance around the professional peloton now makes you realise how much market share they've lost over the years to both new and old brands in the clothing market.

This dramatic team jersey from the 1990 season was given a black background especially for the riders taking part in the Giro D'Italia.

Le Groupement only lasted a season but it`s team jersey gets plenty of mentions decades later - normally in lists of worst ever jersey designs!

I like the simplicity of this Lotto team jersey, the bold red, black and white colours looked great in the Spring Classics!
