Riding Zullo bicycles, the team rode the 1987 Giro D'Italia in this exact jersey. It's a typical "Euro" look about it, with numerous sponsors giving it a busy look.

Riding Zullo bicycles, the team rode the 1987 Giro D'Italia in this exact jersey with Hoonved only appearing on the jersey demoting Transvemij.
But it was not the fact that the team rode in that epic edition of the race, it was the fact that Joe Parkin rode for the team. Joe's book "A Dog in a Hat" is one of my favourite books about cycling. It's a fantastic yet authentic story about his living as a pro cyclist in Belgium. He later wrote "Come & Gone", which I also enjoyed but that was about his return to the USA and a bit of MTBing through in too! If you haven't read his first book, please do!
Hoonved was also a subsponsor of the American 7 Eleven cycling team when they raced in Europe and has appeared on a number of jerseys over the years.
