A stunning example of the instantly recognisable design for World Cycling Champion.
Through his win at the Championships held at Goodwood that year Guiseppe Saronni spent the following season clad in the prestigious rainbow colours.
The design regulations for the jersey are tight as defined by the UCI, the jersey features the rainbow colours around the body as well as on the trims of the collar and cuffs.
The team sponsors branding appears on the chest with the manufacturer branding near the left shoulder. By 1983 the team had switched manufacturers from Castelli to another Italian firm Parentini.
At the World Championships of 1982 Saronni beat closet rival Greg Lemond with a final sprint which was so impressive it gained him the nickname of the ‘Goodwood rifle shot’. In the same year he was also be crowned victor in the Giro di Lombardia, one of the five one day ‘monument’ events so called because of their history and difficulty.
