COLNAGO C40 B Stay – authentic bike of F.CANCELLARA (Team MAPEI Quick-Step 2001) – SOLD

Ernesto Colnago was born on February 9, 1932 in Cambiago, near Milan, Italy. At age 13 he entered in world of two wheels and immediately he fall in love with bikes and cycling. In 1952 he founded Colnago and started to work as mechanic for several professional teams. Colnago’s bikes still have a domination of the world’s cycling sports because Ernesto was always an innovator and pioneer of new technologies which supposedly provide more efficency or comfort.

In 1994 Colnago started to produce their very successful model C40 — ‘C’ for carbon and ‘40’ to commemorate Colnago’s 40th year in business. Full carbon frame with Master profile carbon tubes bonded to carbon lugs. Colnago solved the problem of how to make a carbon frame durable enough to win the toughest cobbled Classics yet light enough to soar up Alpine cols. That’s the reason why the C40 is the favourite bike of all time for so many people — including Sir Bradley Wiggins. Colnago could have created something with perhaps a swoopy, futuristic profile befitting its revolutionary design. Instead he kept the tubes ramrod-straight in the traditional style — albeit with the star-shaped cross-section that he had pioneered with the steel Master.

Mapei was an Italian-based pro cycling team active from 1993 to 2002, named after sponsoring firm MAPEI. They were the biggest and most ambitious team that cycling has ever seen and won practically everything. Looking back from another decade, we examine that Mapei team earned a unique place in cycling history. For 7 years in a row (1994-2000) they won UCI Team rankings. Stars riders included Abraham Olano, Johan Museeuw, Michele Bartoli, Franco Ballerini, Óscar Freire, Frank Vandenbroucke, Andrea Tafi, Tony Rominger, Paolo Bettini, Luca Scinto among the others.. The Colnago C40 won 5 out of 6 editions of Paris-Roubaix in years (1995-2000) and several world champion titles in years 1996-2002.

Fabian Cancellara (born 18 March 1981), nicknamed “Spartacus“, a former Swiss pro cyclist. Since turning professional in 2000 with Mapei Quick step, Cancellara has ridden for four professional teams. He has achieved great success in the classic monuments; he has won ParisRoubaix three times, the Milan–San Remo once, and the Tour of Flanders three times. Cancellara has won the opening stage of the Tour de France five times and has led the race for 29 days total, which is the most of any rider who has not won the Tour .His success has not been limited to just time trials and classics, as he has won general classification of the Tirreno–Adriatico, Tour de Suisse, and theTour of Oman. In 2008, he won gold in the individual time trial and silver in the men’s road race at the Summer Olympics. In 2016, he won Olympic gold in the individual time trial for the second time in his career. In addition, Cancellara has been the time trial world champion four times in his career.

Here we are proudly offering a legendary racing machine – COLNAGO C40 Mapei, ridden by Swiss power-horse Fabian Cancellara back in 2001 when he rode for Mapei – Quick Step. The bike is shinning in original Mapei paint job with original set-up. No much words needed.

A special piece for all Colnago and Mapei fans.
