Rossin was founded in 1973 as a result of a disagreement between Vittorio Ghezzi and Ernesto Colnago, after Colnago facilitated Baronchelli’s move to SCIC. As a esult, Ghezzi decided to produce his own line of competitive bicycles and recruited Mario Rossin who worked for Colnago. In September1974, Rossin was born with the logo made of an “R” nestled in a pentagon recognizing the 5 founders of the new company (i.e., Vttorio and Guiseppe, Alberto Inzaghi, Dominico Garbelli, and Mario Rossin). In 1981, Rossin sponsored the Belgian DAF Trucks team with riders like Roger De Vlaeminck. In 1983, Rossin bikes were used both by the Russian and USA national track teams. In 1992 Rossin name was sold to Finross. Mario Rossin died in November 2018.
