Giuseppe Olmo (22 November 1911 – 5 March 1992) was an Italian road bicycle racer. He competed at the 1932 Olympics and won a gold medal in the team road race, placing fourth individually. In October 1935 he set a new world record for an hour’s run at 45.090 km. As with many Italian bicycle racers, after his retirement in the late 1930s he began building bicycles, and founded Biciclette Olmo. His manufacturing center was set up in his home town of Celle Ligure, Italy.
Later in his life, Giuseppe (Often called “Gepin” for short) came to be known as a successful entrepreneur and between the 1940s and 1970s he expanded his company into several manufacturing industries. They produced some very high quality bicycles often comparative quality to the great Colnago.
Igor González de Galdeano Aranzabal (born 1 November 1973) is a Spanish ex pro rider. He turned professional in 1995 with the Basque team EUSKADI, which at the time was only in its second year of racing and suffering from financial hardship. For the 1999 season, González de Galdeano moved on to the Spanish Vitalicio Seguros team, and it was in this season that González de Galdeano made a name for himself on the domestic racing scene. Early in the season, González de Galdeano won stage five and finished fifth in the general classification of the Tirreno–Adriatico and adding three more top ten placings in Spanish stage races through the season. He saved his best for the Vuelta España in September. González de Galdeano won two stages – a 6 km prologue and a mountain stage which finished in Andorra Despite his excellent time trial skills, González de Galdeano eventually missed out on claiming the overall victory of the race when he lost nearly four minutes to the eventual race winner Jan Ullrich on the penultimate stage, a time-trial, and so finished second.
Following a promising start to his career at Vitalicio Seguros, González de Galdeano became a key rival of Lance Armstrong, Jan Ullrich and Marco Pantani of the Tour de France supremacy. In the 2002 Tour de France, González de Galdeano wore the yellow jersey for seven days and in the 2003 Vuelta a España wore the gold jersey for one day. At an average speed of 55.17 km/h, González de Galdeano also holds the record for the fastest stage win in the Vuelta a España, a feat which earned him the nickname Speedy González.
