Secondly, Vittoria - as an Italian brand - sponsors with its top cotton tires and tubulars the Italian Federation. Moreover, during the World Championships we proudly supported the Italian Team with our fully equipped Vittoria team bus. Here a nice video with a high visibility for our Vittoria team bus
The Italian Federation
was not the only one that chose Vittoria; nine other Federations
rode on Vittoria tires at the World Championships as well: Australian Cycling Federation, British Cycling Federation, Ethiopian Cycling Federation, Japan Cycling Federation, Korean Cycling Federation, Portuguese Cycling Federation, Slovenian Cycling Federation, South African Cycling Federation, and USA Cycling Federation.
Shimano was the official technical supporter of the 2013 UCI Road World Championships and all their wheels were equipped with our Corsa CX cotton tires
, in order to support the racers with the fastest tubulars. Thanks to all these long-term collaborations and to our continuous research and development efforts, Vittoria won nine podiums, including the 2013 Elite Road World Champions Rui Costa
(Movistar) and Marianne Vos
Thus, Vittoria is the overall No. 1 tire brand
of the 2013 UCI Road World Championships.
Congratulations to all our great athletes, the teams and their staff, for their achievements and for getting us to this historical result.
