Via Nirone, Milan, 1885. The Bianchi shop opens its doors for the first time, heralding a new era in bicycle design. Fast forward four years and this fledgling frame manufacturer took its first race victory under the guidance of Gian Ferdinando Tommaselli at the Gran Prix de Paris. The celeste wheels were in motion and Bianchi was beginning to make a name for itself as one of Italy’s finest frame builders. Picking up twelve Giro d’Italia victories, three Tour de France wins and two Vuelta a Espana titles, performance is at the heart of Bianchi.
