Giuseppe (Beppi) Saronni Was Colnago’s most successful rider of the 1980s. He won the world championships on a Colnago in 1982. His teams bike that year (Del Tongo) was painted a gorgeous deep red and that color is usually referred to now as “Saronni red”. Saronni would add a World Championship in 1982 and another general classification Giro title in 1983. Colnago started marketing bicycles under the Saronni brand in 1980 (possibly late 1979) in order to capitalize on the Giro victory. This is a true saronni colnago limited line not to be mistaken for a colnago just painted in saronni red. This can be recognized by the saronni markings on the seat stay.
