A "Ritter" Cinelli Laser

Matteo sends this photo (originally appearing in gs-guccilife) of a Cinelli Laser with "Ritter" on the downtube.

Can someone identify the rider?

I invite you to contribute by sending in photographs of your Cinelli bike, illustrations, personal stories, and articles about Cinelli bikes and components.

Thanks for stopping by.

I can be contacted at veronaman@gmail.com


  1. He's Hans-Henrik Oersted pro pursuit gold medal at 1984 world championships with Cinelli Laser.


  2. That's right, danish rider Ørsted. he later took the hour record - on a Colnago, I believe. The name "Ritter" on the downtube refers to Ole Ritter reknowned danish rider in late 60' and 70', he rode on italien teams - he had the hour record for four year until Mercx broked it.
