Becoming a European Champion
Wilier Triestina has produced a special colour scheme for the URTA SLRs ridden by the Wilier-Pirelli team European champions Simone Avondetto and Fabian Rabensteiner.
Because winners are born but champions are made.
Two weeks after Rabensteiner’s victory, Simone Avondetto (silver medallist in Novi Sad in 2021) finally wins the European XCO in the under 23 category in Anadia, Portugal.
The Andean Raid is an ultracycling event that starts and ends in Cusco.
Laura Gallardo was the best among the women, completing the 440 kilometre course, with 9,000 metres of elevation gain, in 39 hours and 27 minutes.
The Seven Serpents Gravel is an off-road bikepacking challenge that stretches over 800 kilometres, with a positive elevation gain of 15,000 metres.
Omar Martinello (known to most as Omero) and his Jena covered the entire route, from Ljubljana to Trieste. In four days.
Marco Pantani's début with the Mercatone Uno team included a Wilier Triestina bicycle. Though bad luck struck in the Giro d’Italia, everything changed at the Tour de France and the cycling world was blinded by a yellow, red and blue bike.
Wearing the pink jersey, Fiorenzo Magni won the final stage in a sprint at Velodromo Vigorelli in the 1948 Giro d’Italia. While the cyclist’s jersey bore no sponsors’ names, the name of the winning team was embroidered in white on his shorts: Wilier Triestina.
