1997 - Banesto Maillot

Banesto
1997

Indurain retires. It’s time to look for new challenges. The team feeds from its amateur squad, where the big names that will make the future in cycling come from: Jiménez, Blanco, Sastre, Casero, Menchov… Olano brushed the Tour podium and won the final time trial around Disneyland Paris, while the victory count of the previous year gets doubled. The recycling process from the ‘Indurain era’ is successful.

A VICTORIOUS CHANGE OF GUARD
