Ciao Lino: Il Saluto Blu-Fucsia a Un Grande Amico

From Lampre-Farnese Vini:

"The news today of the death of Lino Gastaldello, owner of the Wilier company, has shocked the Lampre-Farnese Vini team.

In this sad moment, all the cyclists, managers, staff and patron Galbusera would like to say farewell and thanks to Lino, good friend of the blue-fucsia colors who lived fantastic moments with the team.

A hug to Gastaldello family and to Wilier company workers."

The 71 year old Gastaldello was killed when he was struck by an automobile while riding one of his Wilier bicycles.

Our condolences to the Gastaldello family.

  1. Le più sentite condoglianze alla famiglia Gastaldello...

  2. Sad to see any cyclist killed by a motorist, especially in Italy of all places! But at least Lino died enjoying himself, using a bicycle he was involved in the making of.
