European Championships Glasgow 2018: the success of Vittoria
Glasgow 2018 saw many medalists using Vittoria tyres. In many of the disciplines involved in the European Championships, athletes on Vittoria tyres performed extremely well.
In total, Vittoria collected the impressive amount of 39 medals, split as it follows:
- Track: 11 golds, 12 silvers, 9 bronzes - #VittoriaPista
- Road: 3 golds, 1 silver, 1 bronze - #VittoriaCorsa
- MTB: 1 gold, 1 silver - #VittoriaMezcal
The majority of the medals came from the athletes of the Italian National team, and this fact adds tremendous value to the Vittoria partnership with Federazione Ciclistica Italiana (the Italian national cycling federation). Vittoria started the journey with the Italian federation many years ago, and many other successes are yet to come. Next step: 2020 Olympic Games.
All the riders using Vittoria thrilled us with their amazing performances in race. Here are some of the most exciting moments at the European Championships:
The first podium on Vittoria tyres arrived with the gold quartet in the men's pursuit. 'An overflowing Italy' composed of Filippo Ganna, Francesco Lamon, Elia Viviani and Michele Scartezzini. The 4 were supported during the race by #VittoriaPista tyres.
Vittoria won the second gold medal thanks to Maria Giulia Confalonieri in the points race. A “terrific” Maria that made us dream, taking us to the winner’s podium. Once again #VittoriaPista tire leads the Italians to their great successes on track!
Another great emotion came with Marta Bastianelli’s gold medal in the women's road test at the Glasgow European Championship 2018. A great success also for Vittoria who led the athlete to her success with #VittoriaCorsa tires: the only ones in the world with Graphene. #PoweredByGraphene.
Amazing race at the Glasgow European Championship MTB Cross Country ending with another gold medal and a silver medal for Vittoria. We reached the podium thanks to the Italian Luca Braidot, and to the new XC European Champion Lars Foster from Switzerland. Their incredible results were achieved riding on #VittoriaMezcal #PoweredByGraphene.
