aspen

superleggero_silk_foulard_aspen_88

The new silk carré aspen 86 is our tribute to the Coors Classic, a race held in North America between 1975 and 1988.
The race was considered the fourth biggest stage race on the world cycling calendar after the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta.
From a 3-days of racing in Colorado in the first years, the race grew to 2 weeks with stages across Nevada, Colorado, California, many of them criterium races or time trials like the time-trial hill climb up to San Francisco's famous Telegraph Hill.
The race leader wore a wonderful red jersey with white diagonal stripes
- some years horizontal - with new graphics yearly, inspired by the two main sponsors.
What a splendid obsession!

The new carré is made of the finest and purest Muslin silk (Mussola di seta) an old luxurious silk yarn, warped, woven, milled and silkscreen-printed in Como, using the old traditional technique «stampa a quadro alla comasca».

mardi à Lausanne

story-superleggero_a_travers_lausanne_rue_du_petit_chene_1.jpg

On the way back from Geneva, I stopped in Lausanne to drink a good beer and meet a good friend. I love Lausanne, small city with a very “chic” taste of frenchness and not at all swissness. For me Lausanne is not only ECAL or TAS, I remember Lausanne for the « À travers Lausanne » a Contre le Montre, the tuesday after the Tour de France. The race was like a “red carpet” for the winner of the Tour. The depart was in Quai d’Ouchy and the arrivee, after 4km, in Sauvablin but the Rue du Petit-Chêne was a breakheart hill, 200m at 18% in pavé. The race was won by FAUSTO COPPI, 4 times by EDDY MERCKX, POULIDOR, 5 times by ZOETEMELK and in 1998 after a fantastic Tour, by MARCO PANTANI.
