Battaglin Giovanni is a legendary former cyclist and was born on 22nd July 1951 in Marostica (Vicenza, North-East Italy). In 1981, in space of less than two months, he won Vuelta and Giro and was only the second rider after Eddy Merckx to win the Vuelta-Giro double. In early 1980s, on the wake of his cycling’s successes and after a violent bike crash, he decided to start building bikes in a tiny workshop near his hometown. Very soon he launched his first bicycle.
Jørgen Vagn Pedersen (born 8 October 1959 in Copenhagen, Hovedstaden) is a retired Danish road bicycle racer, and as of 2007 sports director at Team CSC. He participated in Tour de France in 1985, 1986, and 1987 for the Carrera Jeans–Vagabond team. In 1988 he rode the Tour de France for BH. In 1985 he won the 10th stage. In 1986 he rode, as the second Dane, five days in the yellow jersey. In 1986 he was second overall in the stage race Danmark Rundt.
