During their time in the professional peloton, the Mapei team dominated professional cycling at the time which included winning an incredible 653 races!

I could never hope to feature every single Mapei team jersey that ever existed - but I'll certainly show you a good cross section of them.  Due to the numerous world and national champions on the team rosters, there are a huge number of special champion jerseys out there too!

The team started out life in 1993 when Parentini made the team jersey for a single season, that saw the team compete as either Eldor-Viner or Mapei-Viner.

The following year, Sportful started a long relationship with the team that would last right until the penultimate year of sponsorship when Santini too over for the final year in 2002.

There are of course numerous articles online about the team, but this article on cyclingnews.com is probably the best out there.
