HISTORY AND TRADITION RUN SIDE BY SIDE AT MSTINA
From athlete to entrepreneur: one man's determination and perseverance
TECHNICAL SPORTSWEAR FOR OVER 30 YEARS
MsTina was founded in 1986 thanks to the entrepreneurial insight of Marcel Tinazzi.
A foretaste of his creative genius is captured in an episode in his sporting career. In 1982, Marcel was still an athlete when, thanks to his drive and determination, he completed the Tour de France despite a fracture in his right navicular bone. That accident led to an innovative idea: to produce a short sleeve jersey with a full-length zip, the first of its kind at that time. It became a success: it was a comfortable, practical jersey, the perfect solution worn by many other cyclists.
The company has always reflected the resourcefulness of Marcel Tinazzi. From great sporting successes, his natural talent led him to become a successful entrepreneur by developing innovative technological solutions for technical clothing and cycling.
MARCEL TINAZZI, FROM ATHLETE TO ENTREPRENEUR
Marcel Tinazzi made his debut in cycling in 1977 and competed in races until 1986.
In his first year as a professional cyclist he won the title of French national champion. One of the most notable successes of his brilliant career was his historic win in the 1982 Bordeaux-Paris race.
Throughout Marcel Tinazzi’s career, his greatest secret has been to never stop dreaming, even when he stopped racing on his bike. Also as an entrepreneur, he has successfully applied this spirit to his MsTina business, setting himself the goal of creating high-quality technical sportswear collections, with a special focus on competitive cycling.
