from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ivan Basso in the 2003 Tour de France individual time trial

Fassa Bortolo was a professional cycling team from Italy from 2000 to 2005 under the direction of Giancarlo Ferretti .

The team was tailored to the sprint star Alessandro Petacchi until 2005 . He won four stages in the 2003 Tour de France , nine in the 2004 Giro d'Italia , and another four in the Vuelta a España . In the 2003 Tour de France, however, only three drivers arrived in Paris, with Ivan Basso in seventh place as the best driver in the overall standings.

Fassa Bortolo participated as one of 20 teams in the 2005 UCI Pro Tour . After the 2005 season, the team was dissolved because sponsor Fassa Bortolo withdrew from men's cycling and has since supported the Top Girls Fassa Bortolo team in women's cycling .
