For Gimondi & Bianchi Fans: Bianchi Oltre XR "Gimondi 70"

Bianchi has produced a special Oltre XR in a limited edition of 70 bicycles to celebrate Gimondi's 70th birthday. The special bike, made unique by Bianchi in many details, was unveiled at the gala in honor of Gimondi in Bergamo, on Friday, September 28th.

The Oltre XR "Gimondi 70", with Campagnolo's Super Record EPS electronic gruppo , has four customized components with the "Gimondi 70" :

- Campagnolo Bora high-profile carbon wheelset (with Veloflex tubolars)
- Selle San Marco Concor carbon FX saddle
- La Spirale white grip
- Elite Corsa bottle

The graphics on the "Gimondi 70" feature personalized graphics: the mix of “celeste” Bianchi and light blue color, the latter referring to the Bianchi jersey worn by Gimondi and the sapphire, the amulet stone distinguishing the people born in September; the names of Gimondi’s main wins,  multicolor inserts along the tubes to remind all of the prestigious Felice’s wins: Tour, Giro, Vuelta, World and Italian Championships; a Bianchi logo like the one on Gimondi’s bike 40 years ago.

Stories for the Italian Cycling Journal about rides, granfondos, touring, having a good time cycling in Italy, Italian cycling history, racing, etc. are always welcome.
