The Salvarani cycling team was founded in 1963 and was a cycling powerhouse until it disbanded in 1972. The Salvarani family manufactured kitchens in their factory in Baganzola, near Parma. The brothers all enjoyed sport and formed a group to sponsor various clubs, indulging their passion as well as enhancing the profile of their company.
After first sponsoring a football team, they entered the world of cycling in 1963, taking on the former Ghigi team’s sponsorship. Salvarani tasted success quickly, with 1961 Giro winner Arnaldo Pambianco claiming the Tour of Sardinia early in their first season.
But it was the arrival of Adorni in 1964 and then Gimondi in 1965 that transformed the team. The year after his Tour win Gimondi claimed the team’s first Monument, Paris-Roubaix. When Gimondi became Salvarani’s undisputed dominant force, Adorni left at the end of 1966 for the Salamini team (he would return to Salvarani in 1971 as manager).
