Bianchi is the world’s oldest bicycle-making company still in existence, founded in 1885 by Eduardo Bianchi in Milan, Italy. No doubt, Bianchi is the pioneer of bicycle development since the beginning. They invented equal-sized wheels with pneumatic rubber tires in 1895, first bicycle ever featuring a cardan joint transmission in 1901 and front brake system in 1913.
Franco Chioccioli (born 25 August 1959 in Castelfranco di Sopra) is an Italian former professional road racing cyclist. He started his pro career in 1982 with Selle Italia Team. In 1988-91 he rode for Del Tongo Team. The highlight of his career was his overall win in the 1991 Giro d’Italia. In 1992-93 he rode for GB – MG Maglificio Team and finished the Giro in 3rd place, behind M.Indurain and C.Chiappucci. In total he won 7 stages at the Giro d’Italia, one stage at the Tour de France (1992) and one stage at Tour de Suisse.
