The C50 was introduced in 2004 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Colnago, it’s a timeless bike with true racing pedigree.
Colnago has been a staple of the peloton for many years and has been the bike of choice for seven riders who have won the World Championships.
The C50 was one of these models, piloting Spanish sprinter Oscar Freire to victory in Verona in 2004, the same year the bike was released. Riding for Rabobank on a Colnago C50, Freire outsprinted rivals Erik Zabel and Luca Paolini for this third world title.
It was the last win at the worlds for Colnago, making the C50 a legend of the stable. It was made even more important by the fact that Verona is only a few hours down the road from Cambiago, the homeplace of Colnago.
