Bianchi Campione del mondo

Edoardo Bianchi is arguably one of the most important figures in the world of cycling. Born in 1865 in the heart of Milan, he grew up in an orphanage in the city center, where he enjoyed a wonderful education and, incredibly, was introduced to mechanical engineering. Shortly before his 20th birthday in 1885, Edoardo went into business for himself and opened his own workshop. His motto was simple and clear: use the best components and offer the best possible product, which is why you can be sure that old Bianchi bicycles are of the highest quality. Everyone has seen the characteristic blue-green hue that is synonymous with Bianchi bicycles. The correct name for this color is Celeste. This word translated from Italian into English means "heavenly" or "blue". Many brands on the market try to have instantly recognizable logos, but nothing attracts as much attention as the striking Celeste color.
In 1953, the road cycling world championship took place in Lugano (Switzerland) near the Italian border. After an incredible 7h30min race, professional road cyclist Fausto Coppi won the exciting race with a solo attack ahead of the Belgians Derijcke and Ockers. After this prestigious victory, Bianchi renamed its previous top model Paris-Roubaix to CDM (Campione del mondo). Thus, the CDM became Bianchi's top racing bike in the mid-1950s and only later, in the early 1960s, did the Specialissima model series come out. Of course, this is not the original bike of world champion Fausto Coppi, but he and the other heroes won on very similar Bianchi bikes.
The history of the Campagnolo Gran Sport is almost legendary. After the Second World War, two racing legends dominated cycling and often shared first and second place: Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali. While Bartali won the Tour de France in 1948 with his beloved Campagnolo Cambio Corsa, Fausto Coppi strove for innovation and improvement, switched to a Simplex gear system and triumphed the following year. The fact that an Italian won the Tour with a French gear system made Tullio Campagnolo so angry that in 1951 he not only released the groundbreaking GranSport, but also revolutionized derailleur gears with it.
