Not 100% sure, but i think it was 1st Euclid, 2nd Centaur and 3rd Olympus.

Euclid was the top group from '89 to about '91, with Centaur and Olympus behind. Although it has it's fans, I found it ridiculously over engineered, heavy and ugly and preferred the performance of Centaur and Olympus.
In '92 Record OR was released with Icarus taking second place -this stuff was far better IMO; lighter, more elegant and much better performing, lovely.

So they discontinued Euclid post `91 and Record was then the top group?It must`ve only lasted a year or so as Campag got out of the mtb gruppo game in 1993?

For me, I preferred the earlier Campagnolo group sets, loved it for being over engineered and heavy (solid?)
