CINELLI GETS BACK IN PRO CYCLING WITH FSA & VISION
The 2019 racing season features the return of Cinelli in Pro Cycling, who are partnering with Team Colpack for their next adventure in the Continental cycling division.
Cinelli, the legendary Italian bicycle manufacturing company based in Milan, Italy, has been at the forefront of professional Cycling for several seasons. Back in 1974, they famously designed an aerodynamic bike on which the Danish rider Ole Ritter broke his own Hour record. Furthermore, Cinelli bikes have a long history of victories, with 28 gold medals between the Olympics Games and World Championships.
Full Speed Ahead and Vision will be collaborating with Cinelli in their 2019 return by continuing the traditional partnership that links the two companies. We are looking forward to a successful season as technical sponsors, providing the quality and the design of their products.
Antonio Colombo, president of Cinelli, revealed with enthusiasm, “We have met the challenge of road racing with one of the most dynamic amateur teams in Team Colpack. This represents the nurturing of young professional talent by making the jump up to the Continental race level. They will be entering a more international calendar in 2019 and challenging top teams and athletes, which will require the riders and the organization to stay focused. This same challenge awaits Cinelli. We are proud to partner with FSA/Vision on this new adventure, which started from a fixed gear and is destined to continuously expand as a testimony to the affinity of values and vision of these two prestigious cycling brands.”
“Cinelli has always been directly referenced with innovation for road cycling and together with them it has created this important opportunity”, said Claudio Marra, Full Speed Ahead & Vision Vice President and Global Marketing Manager. He added, “Furthermore, the suggestions of Team Colpack’s athletes will be very precious in order to increase the visibility and the awareness of our products, in addition to the technical quality that we want to provide for the riders.”
Team Colpack has a successful history in creating some of the brightest talents in Italian cycling, and in the 2019 racing season, their athletes will ride on Cinelli Superstar model bikes. They will be equipped with many top-of-the-line FSA & VISION products including:
