Cipollini Rides a Cipollini

We take a close look at the MCipollini bike ridden by none other than the man himself - Mario Cipollini. While he no longer races professionally, both he and his bike still look quite fast. We were able to catch Mario and his bike during a trip to the United States to watch the USA Pro Cycling Challenge.

Known as one of the greatest sprinters of all-time, Mario has an impressive resume: former World Champion, winner of Milan San Remo, and countless stage wins in grand tours. He was known for putting down massive amounts of power on flat stages, a flamboyant style, and superior skill with the ladies.

These days, 'Cipo' maintains a rigorous training schedule, and also works as an adviser for the Farnese Vini-Selle Italia team (who ride his frames). The bikes themselves are said to be uniquely crafted in Italy - these are not your typical off-the-shelf frames from Asia.

Enjoy this look at the steed of a champion. More information can be found at the company's website:
