Lausanne, 2nd December 2017 – Following the positive experience at the 2017 Road European Championships in Herning (Denmark) and MTB in Darfo Boario Terme (Italy), the relationship between the Union Européenne de Cyclisme and Vittoria Servizio Corse has strengthened and been renewed until 2020.

The agreement signed today in Lugano between Rocco Cattaneo, President of the Union Européenne de Cyclisme, and René Timmermans, CEO of Vittoria EMEA, includes provision of the neutral breakdown service by Vittoria Servizio Corse at Road European Championships as well as an equipped assistance centre for the MTB European Championships.

Rocco Cattaneo, President of the Union Européenne de Cyclisme: “The Union Européenne de Cyclisme is proud to have the prestigious Vittoria Servizio Corse at the European Championships. Vittoria Servizio Corse has always been an excellent provider in this sector and is also above all synonymous with a guarantee of reliability and safety. The training and professionalism of the staff who will be at the European Championships will make a great contribution to the growth of each event guaranteeing a top-level service for all competitors.

I would like to thank Vittoria Servizio Corse and the CEO of Vittoria EMEA, René Timmermans, for their trust and passion vis- à-vis our development project focused on the high level of events and on riders’ safety which will be developed from next season thanks to this new agreement”.

René Timmermans, CEO of Vittoria EMEA: “I would like to thank the Union Européenne de Cyclisme for entrusting us with the neutral breakdown service. Ten years ago, we started to provide an efficient and professional service, not just limited to technical assistance during a race, but which is also a vital element for race safety.

Following an initial positive experience at the 2017 European Championships, we will work together with the Union Européenne de Cyclisme on a long-term project with enthusiasm and passion which we have always been renowned for and with the satisfaction of becoming a partner”.
