The Gewiss/Ballan team dominated the early season classics in 1994 with Berzin, Furlan and Argentin winning all before them! Berzin then won the Giro d`Italia (Tour of Italy) while Piotr Ugrumov came second overall in Tour de France. Bobrik finished the season off by winning the Giro di Lombardia.
Whilst Phil Liggett in the commentary suggested the team`s success was down to their early adoption of Campagnolo`s Shamal wheels, it`s now well known it was down to systematic doping that occurred with the team.
Even so, it`s still a nice jersey design that has stood the test of time well, and combined with the matching navy bib shorts was a nice contrast with the Celeste of the Bianchi bikes that the team rode.
