Paolo Bettini took a great many victories in his pro career, but surely one of the most important was his victory in the 2004 Athens Olympic road race.

He broke away with Sergio Paulinho for a comfortable victory, but due to the incredibly strict IOC licensing rules, the Olympic rings did not ever appear on his team jersey (as none are official sponsors). So Vermarc made this "celebration" jersey which looks great and allowed him to stand out, certainly more so than 2008 and 2012 champions that followed. Vermarc also made it available for replica sales too - so Bettini fans could buy their own!

Paolo Bettini has now left his post as coach at the Italian national team - many believe to take a role within Fernando Alonso`s new professional team.
