1957 - Cinelli S.C. (Ron Kitching ed.)

Ron Kitching, was one of the most influential cycle trade figures since the war. He made his fortune in cycling, and returned much of it to cycling through sponsorship of racing, cycling groups and events. Ron was a champion road racer and time triallist in the 1930s, who used his expertise to found a shop in Harrogate and a company importing and distributing cycle components. He was also a partner in several high-class cycle manufacturing ventures.
