There’s a whole generation who became hooked on cycling watching Roche’s superhuman attack in stage 21 of the Tour when he literally collapsed on the finish line. Or his successful breakaway in Villach, when he showed an unrivaled mastery of the sport’s tactics
It’s been 3 decades since that amazing year.
At Officina Battaglin, there’s only one way to celebrate sporting anniversaries, and this is why we’re launching:
The Stephen Roche frame from Officina Battaglin is made specially for the man himself with the same process as 30 years ago, blending the traditional lugged construction with exclusive finishes.
It’s a tribute to the Battaglin racing legacy and a celebration of the champion’s mindset, available in a very limited run of 30 pieces worldwide.
