Trademark Atala was born in 1907 in Milan and is responsible for writing many memorable pages in the cycling history. The Atala cycling team that was created in 1908 and officially retired in 1989, so for sure one the teams with longest existence. It was partnered with several co-sponsors, but Atala was always first The first two editions of the Giro d’Italia 1909 and 1910, were won Luigi Ganna and Carlo Galetti and both rode for Atala Team. In 1921 artigian frame-builder Cesare Rizatto took over building top road bikes for Atala.
In 1984 the Atala Team were co-sponsored by Campagnolo, so the offical name was Atala-Campagnolo Team. They had 2 big stars on board, swiss sprinter Urs Freuler who won 10 world championships on track and 15 stages at Giro d’Italia in 1980s and Pierino Gavazzi who was 1983 Italian national champion. The team rode Atala Corsa Professionisti bikes build with Campagnolo Super Record, and one of this bikes is presented here.
