Granfondo Fausto Coppi Officine Mattio has announced a technical partnership with bicycle tyre manufacturer Vittoria. The Bergamo-based company will be the exclusive technical sponsor of the international granfondo, which is scheduled for June 30th, 2019, in Cuneo (North West Italy).
The tyre brand and its Servizio Corse 2.0 will be present at the 2019 edition of the international granfondo, offering free technical assistance to all cyclists. Vittoria technical assistance will be available to both routes chosen by cyclists: a 177 km granfondo with 4125m vertical ascent or the 111km middle route with 2510m of climbing.
The service will be performed through the Servizio Corse 2.0 #BehindCyclists in collaboration with Cicli Mattio.
The Servizio Corse 2.0 is ‘the pride of Vittoria’. Every season, the neutral race assistance service supports cyclists in road and MTB competitions. In 2018, the Servizio Corse 2.0 provided professional assistance in over 60 competitions throughout Europe. The team consists of ex-cycling professionals and mechanics.
