De Rosa Pista Frameset
De Rosa was asked by the famous cyclist Raphaël Géminiani in 1958 to build him a bike for the upcoming Giro d'Italia. Following up, The Faema, Tbac (1964) and Max Majer (1967) was the first few team to ride De Rosa frames.
In 1969 De Rosa was approached by Gianni Motta, for Motta's team as well. It was during this period that one of the greatest stars of cycling was rising - Eddy Merckx. DeRosa built some frames for Merckx around this time, but it was not until 1973 that their relationship was formalized and De Rosa became the official frame builder and mechanic for the Molteni team which he captained. Merckx and his teammates won nearly all the major European races including the Tour de France, the Giro d'Italia, Milan–San Remo and the World Championship. This partnership with Molteni remained in effect until Merckx's retirement in 1978. In 1981 De Rosa worked as technical consultant to Merckx, who began his own bicycle manufacturing company.
In 1974 Francesco Moser engaged De Rosa for his Filotex team, and went on to win the World Championship. Later, in 1982 De Rosa sponsored the Sammontana team led by Moreno Argentin and Giovanbattista Baronchelli.
