Renowned Dutch cyclist Rini Wagtmans is the owner of the Rogelli brand. His success in the sporting goods business comes as no surprise, given his successful past as a professional cyclist. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Wagtmans had a distinguished cycling career, even wearing the yellow jersey in the Tour de France. He achieved three stage victories, as well as fifth and sixth places in the general classification. In addition, in Spain, he won two stage victories in the Vuelta a España.
After retiring from sport in the late 1980s, Wagtmans started its business as a sports wholesaler. Rogelli is a sportswear brand characterised by its focus on the athlete, which is reflected in the quality and design of its products.
