Cyclist Magazine Podcast Episode 20 – Mr Fausto Pinarello

21 Jan 2021

On the Cycling Magazine Podcast this week is Mr Fausto Pinarello. From his humble beginnings as a frame painter to worldwide domination with the Ineos Grenadiers/Team Sky and all the times he almost bankrupted the company in between, Fausto has done it all.

James and Joe chat with the man behind the most successful road bike of the last decade on how his father built the Pinarello brand from nothing, the team's many successful relationships with the likes of Barnesto and Ineos, why he has respect for the Mike Sinyard and Specialized bikes and reveals the one rider he never managed to get on a Pinarello bike.
