The story behind the name
In the 1979 Giro d’Italia, Napoli hosted a time trial for the first time in the history of the race. It was a beautiful course of 31 km and the streets were full of people showing their enthusiasm as only the Neapolitans can do. The time trial itself was also very special as it included a paved descent in the historical neighbourhood of Arenaccia.
Wearing the pink jersey as the leading rider, Francesco Moser stormed to victory against the clock in Napoli. That year, Moser won three stages in the Giro before going on to finish second overall in the general classification. The Francesco 1979 bib shorts is dedicated to one of the greatest Italian riders of all time and his victory in streets of Napoli that day in 1979.
