Zero flats helped Team Rwanda riders to podium during first stage at the Tour of Congo: Emmanuel Rudahunga won, and teammates took 3rd, 4th and 5th place. Team manager Jock Boyer said “The roads were horrible: part tarmac, part gravel, part pot holes. Team Rwanda had ZERO flats the entire stage on Vittoria Rubino Pro which we know helped us win. Your tires are incredibly reliable and durable!”
Earth, wind and tires
Beyond the limits
“Thanks to Vittoria Pista EVO CS and Crono EVO CS tubulars I was able to take 1 bronze medal at the Olympic games in Athens 2004, 2 gold and 3 European medals at the European championships, 11 medals at the World Championships and 29 Italian titles.”
Vittoria tires really made the difference.”
During the Paralympics in London, Vittoria was able to give us the best top performing tires and this is proved from all the victories we had there.”
THE RAISIN HOPE FOUNDATION
The Raisin Hope Foundation hosted its second annual charity ride at and around the outdoor cycling track Wheelerplanet. In support of people with (traumatic) brain injury, many supportive participants were lucky with beautiful weather on an entertaining day of cycling. Vittoria is a sponsor of this event. Cyclists got to enjoy the training courses of Paris-Roubaix winner and RHF ambassador Niki Terpstra through the beautiful Dutch water landscapes as part of their contribution to raise awareness and funds for the special cycling project of this foundation. Participants to this event however are not just supporters of the cause. People with brain injuries were also present and participating in numbers. The organizers had prepared a car-free track of 3 kilometers to facilitate them and had several special bikes available for test rides.
Vittoria supports the projects of the RHF Netherlands, because it is is important that everyone can choose to enjoy the pleasure of cycling. It is fantastic to see how people with brain injuries can benefit so much from something most of us take for granted.
Montanus is a tale about adventure and friendship. It is a story of the adventures of two friends that go “into the wild”. They share their journey on the internet with followers from all over the world. From a less philosophical view, Montanus tries to take the Mountain Bike right where it belongs: in that unique environment where cycling and outdoor blend with harmony, where tent and sleeping bag are good companions.
“Montanus is our journey into the wild and Vittoria’s Goma tire is our third companion during our adventures, it simply never backs off” – Francesco D’Alessio and Giorgio Frattale.
