Famous Pinarello Montello Riders

American Alexi Grewal rode on a Montello winning the 1984 L.A. Olympics Men’s road race.

Vittorio Algeri won (1984) the right to wear the Italian National Champion jersey riding for Metauro Mobili Pinarello on a Montello.

That year Pinarello proudly portrayed a ‘Campione d’Olimpico Campione d’Italia 1984 crest.’ on the downtube.

This photo I believe was taken in 1983. The jersey changed a bit in 1984. Once he’d won the Championships he was then wearing the Italian Champions Jersey.

Pedro Delgado rode a Montello whilst with Team Reynolds in 1983-4 and later for his TdF win in 1988

Mario Fondriest also rode a Montello

Miguel Indurain in the 1989 TdF
