Edelweiss was a professional cycling team that competed during the 1940’s in Italy. In 1948 infamous rider Luigi Malabrocca rode for the team, he is the only rider to win the notorious black jersey twice! The black jersey was ‘won’ by the last ranked ‘Tour of Italy’ rider. The jersey became particularly famous because of the rivalry between riders Luigi Malabrocca and Sante Carollo. In an effort to lose as much time as possible and become the winner of the black jersey, the two riders used some rather extreme tactics such as hiding in bars, barns and deliberately creating mechanical problems. Since the Edelweiss team and brand no longer exists, Pella Sportswear has re-created this famous Italian cycling jersey in honour of this historical team and its rider Luigi Malabrocca
