Ernesto Colnago opened the doors of his world-famous bicycle factory Saturday in Cambiago, Italy. The Italian frame builder and his family welcomed guests during annual Christmas party and mass.
Colnago greeted ex-cyclists Felice Gimondi, Gianni Motta and Giuseppe Saronni, along with a long list of supporters who contributed to his brand over the last 54 years.
Father Don Mazzi held mass for Colnago and the guests. Following mass was a pre-Christmas lunch and well wishes for the 2009 year.
Teams Rabobank, Milram, Tinkoff Credit Systems and Landbouwkrediet - Tönissteiner are some of the teams that used Colnago frames this year.(GB)
