First Italian appointments for Vittoria Servizio Corse
Italian cycling fans had lot of fun last weekend. Strade Bianche on Saturday and Roma Maxima on Sunday let people feel the true pathos of the Pro races. And it’s not over! Tirreno Adriatico is taking place right now and it’s an open challenge amongst several teams.
Vittoria Servizio Corse, with 4 cars and the bus-hospitality, followed Strade Bianche and Roma Maxima, and in this very moment is supporting the “race of the two seas”.
During the first race in Tuscany, Vittoria Servizio Corse had to assist several riders due to punctures, mechanical problems and falls on the famous ‘strade bianche’, extreme conditions for stunning gravel roads. It’s really not easy to be always ready and fast in order to support in the best way the racers that are fighting for the victory.
The first Vittoria supported rider to cross the finish line in Siena was Warren Barguil (Giant-Shimano) in 7th position. Noteworthy, Team Giant-Shimano raced on Vittoria cotton tubular Pavé CG, experiencing no punctures at all. The weekend reached an incredible number of punctures, 66, of which just 8 experienced by Vittoria supported teams.
