He was a professional racer from 1937 to 1944, winning Milan-San Remo in 1943, the Giro di Lombardia in 1938, and the Tour of the Apennines in 1937.  He started the company under his name in 1948.The Cinelli S.C. is a legendary racing bicycle.

Launched around 1950, the Modello SC – Speciale Corsa which was later called Super Corsa and finally Supercorsa – had been the top model of Cinelli for decades, even after the brand was sold to the Colombo family in 1978.
