During his career, that lasted until 1989, he won 193 races. In Italy he gave birth to a famous rivalry with Francesco Moser, like those of Alfredo Binda with Learco Guerra, and Fausto Coppi with Gino Bartali.

In 1982 he won the World Cycling Championship at Goodwood, England, beating American Greg LeMond. His final sprint was so impressive that it gained him the nickname of "Goodwood rifle-shot". The previous year he had won a silver medal, as he had been overcome in the final by Freddy Maertens of Belgium. In 1982 Saronni also won the Giro di Lombardia. At the beginning of 1983 another striking sprint gave him the Milan – San Remo classic, after three consecutive second places in that race. This was Saronni's last great classics victory.

    Bob Stapleton

    Bob Stapleton

    Bob Stapleton (born April 1, 1958, in Riverside, California) is an American entrepreneur and the former team owner of cycling team HTC-Highroad. Stapleton was previously the team manager of HTC-Highroad when it was known as T-Mobile Team. The transition to owner occurred on November 28, 2007 when German telecom company Deutsche Telekom ended its sponsorship after numerous doping allegations surfaced throughout 2007. Stapleton began his relationship with T-Mobile when his communications company VoiceStream Wireless was bought in 2000 by Deutsche Telekom for $50 billion. The original purchase price of Voicestream was $50B. At closing, DT stock had gone down and the value was less. VoiceStream was renamed T-Mobile USA. He later became involved with cycling by founding High Road Sports Inc., which managed T-Mobile Team (both men's and women's) until 2007. After the Operación Puerto scandal touched big names of the men's team such as Jan Ullrich and Óscar Sevilla, and following disputes among riders and managing staff, there were major changes in both the team's roster and management, and Stapleton was appointed team manager.
