Carrera was an Italian-based road bicycle racing team active from 1984 to 1996, named after sponsoring Italian jeans manufacturer Carrera and become a legendary icon of Italian cycling successes.
In 1989, Carrera manager Davide Boifava together with Luciano Bracchi and Francesco Boifava founded Carrera Podium, a top level bike manufacturer. The company’s goal was simple and clear and was founded as a result of experiences gained in professional cycling races by the three partners. Their philosophy was supported by a rich history of over 500 victories in the most prestigious competitions. They combined technical approach with a special Italian sense for elegant lines and the result was beautiful road racing machine.
From 1990 on, Carrera Team rode these Carrera bikes made by experts who built bikes for Pantani, Chiappucci, Bontempi, Abdoesjaparov, Scinadri and was one of the most famous teams in early/mid 1990s.
