De Rosa SLX Professional C-Record Size 60 ct.
In 1969 Ugo De Rosa was approached by Gianni Motta, who wanted to engage De Rosa as his frame builder and mechanic. De Rosa accepted and became the bicycle supplier to Motta’s team as well. It was during this period that one of the greatest stars of cycling was rising – Eddy Merckx. DeRosa built some frames for Merckx around this time, but it was not until 1973 that their relationship was formalized and De Rosa became the official frame builder and mechanic for the Molteni team which he captained. Merckx and his teammates won nearly all the major European races including the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia, Milan–San Remo and the World Championship. This partnership with Molteni remained in effect until Merckx’s retirement in 1978. In 1981 De Rosa worked as technical consultant to Merckx, who began his own bicycle manufacturing company.
