Miko–de Gribaldy

Miko–de Gribaldy was a Belgian professional cycling team that existed from 1974 to 1976.[1][2][3][4] The directeur sportif was former professional rider Jean de Gribaldy, who gave his name to the team. For the final year-and-a-half of its history, its main sponsor was French ice cream manufacturer Miko, whose part-owner, Louis Ortiz, was a friend of de Gribaldy.[5] Its most notable victory was the 1974 Liège–Bastogne–Liège with Georges Pintens.[6]
