I am excited to have collaborated to give concrete help to those who in the past gave me the opportunity to express my potential and to imagine a future in the world of cycling” said Alberto Bettiol.

We are very keen to make available to riders only top-level equipment to prepare them for what is then the world of professionalism. We thank Cannondale for the trust given to our team and especially Bettiol, who in addition to being a friend is a rider that I respect a lot, for the commitment and his participation in the Mastromarco project,” DS Gabriele Balducci.
“For many seasons Vincenzo Nibali has been a fully-fledged partner of our team, now we can also count on the collaboration of Alberto Bettiol. We are proud of our champions. As well as being a real help to carry out the team’s activity, for us this is the most beautiful testimony of affection, esteem and friendship that binds Mastromarco to its riders over the years,” explained Carlo Franceschi, president of the team Mastromarco Sensi Nibali.
