Retro cycling jacket (fleece) Molteni Black - 1958-1976

This is a RedTed replica of the cycling jacket of the Italian professional cycling team Molteni from the period 1958-1976. A warm fleece jersey from the Merckx period (1971-1976). This warm RedTed training jacket has a somewhat longer flexible hem at the sleeves and a long quality zip from YKK.  The cycling jacket is finished off at the bottom with an elastic band with silicone. At the front this edge is a little wider. This keeps the jacket well in place during cycling.

Molteni was a former Italian cycling team, active from 1958 until the end of 1976. Molteni was a salami manufacturer based in the town of Arcore, hence the addition Arcore. Molteni won as a cycling team 663 stages. Many of the stages won by Molteni are credited to its most famous rider: Eddy Merckx. This Belgian rider won both the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia five times.

Many famous cyclists rode in this team, such as the Italians Gianni Molta, Michele Dancelli, Marino Basso, the Swiss René Binggeli, the Luxembourg Edy Schütz and the German Rudi Altig. In the period from 1971 to 1976, the Molteni team was built around its leader Eddy "the cannibal" Merckx. During this Merckx period, the team consisted of a mix of Belgian and Italian riders. The Belgian servants included cyclists Joseph Bruyère, Jef de Schoenmaecke, Frans Mintjens, Jos Spruyt, Jos Huysmans and Vic van Schil. The super man was "Monsieur Bordeaux-Paris" Herman van Springel (in 1971 and 1972). During the Merckx period, the team consisted almost exclusively of Belgian riders and in 1974 the Italian Molteni team consisted exclusively of Belgian riders. There were two Dutchmen who rode for Eddy in the Molteni team, in the first year (1971) it was Rini Wagtmans and in the last year (1976) Cees Bal. In 1976 Molteni stopped sponsoring the cycling team for good.
