|Marino Vigna with Felice Gimondi|
Vigna, born in 1935 in Milan, has worked for Bianchi since 1990 when Bianchi was looking for a representative for England. Today, Vigna suports the equipment needs of amateur and youth clubs that compete on Bianchi bicycles. In his long relationship with Bianchi, Vigna says he only has one regret, that of not having ridden a Bianchi during his racing career. "I never had this opportunity during my career, strange but true. I only had indirect contact with Bianchi, that through Coppi's mechanic Pinella De Grandi who was was our mechanic at the Olympics."
