The Cyclist is excited to be offering cycling goods from Italian maker Sportful. Sportful comes from a somewhat unique background. In the 1940’s, Olindo & Irma Cremonese moved to the Dolomites in Italy and began to build a business with wool. They raised, sheared, carded, and spun their own wool, selling it to Italian clothiers, and eventually began to knit underwear in the 1960’s.
As with so many cycling stories, Team Sky’s story develops as a Cinderella meets the big bad wolf fairy tale. Formed in 2010, it set about with its aim to put the first British rider on the top step of the Tour de France podium within 5 years. It was clinched by Bradley Wiggins in 2012 and successfully repeated in 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2017 by Chris Froome. In 2017, he also won the Vuelta a Espana making Team Sky one of the most successful teams in cycling.
