    Lampre before they turned into UAE - last seen in about 2016 at a guess.

    Prior to that Cannondale/Liquigas - around 2013 I think, as Nibali won the Tour for Astana in 2014

  • Yes Lampre 2016. It's all getting a bit historical 🥺

    Where was the neon Fantini team from?
    Were they Italian?
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Nippon Vini Fantini were Japanese / Italian. I don't think they were ever World Tour.

    Of the traditional cycling countries you've only really got France (Germany maybe) with two teams. I suppose its much more multinational than it was in the past.
