Ganna was an Italian professional cycling team that existed in part between 1913 and 1953.[1] It was started by Luigi Ganna, winner of the general classification of the inaugural Giro d'Italia, and was sponsored by his bicycle and motorcycle manufacturing company.[2][3] Whilst with the team, Fiorenzo Magni won the general classification of the 1951 Giro d'Italia.[3] The team was the predecessor of the Nivea–Fuchs team.[4]
