The Meaning of "928" on Bianchi

Have you ever wondered if there was a significance to the "928" designations in the Bianchi models?

There is! 1949, 1952, 1998: these are the years in which Bianchi won both the Giro and the Tour. Fausto Coppi won both races in 1949 and 1952 as did Marco Pantani in 1998.
