80 years since its hour distance record
The founder’s magnum bottle includes his Cycling Hour Distance Record, 45.090 Km in one hour. 80 years after this important milestone, the Olmo family and the whole Olmo Group wanted to honor this special achievement, with a bottle in an elegant wooden box dedicated to Gepin, but also to all athletes – and in particular cycling enthusiasts – in the world.
The Hour Distance Record
It was in 1935 when at the Vigorelli Velodrome Giuseppe Olmo set the Cycling Hour Distance Record on the track. This historic feat in 1935 was just one of many successes in his career. On a rainy afternoon he established his new record with 45.090 kilometers cycled in one hour, the first in history to surpass the 45 km mark.
Ingenuity and foresight: these traits marked the founder of the Olmo Group, Gepin. Giuseppe Olmo was one of the most famous cyclists of the 1930s. His history is the lifeblood of our company: it represents our roots but also the values ??we believe in. His successes and his tenacity are what drives us even today in every business choice. The bottle celebrating the Hour Record represents a milestone for us. For this reason we have included it in our lineup since 2015, making it always available for friends and customers. A magnum from Carmignano Riserva, designed to be uncorked on special occasions.
