What's Cool In Road Cycling

For Christmas, make a different present: La Fausto Coppi Cicli Mattio and the cyclist’s tree!

A different Christmas idea and also, a good deed? Register a friend to the international cycling marathon La Fausto Coppi Officine Mattio 2018. He/she will start in the first row and you will adopt a tree, which will be donated for the repopulation of the flora damaged by the devastating fires of this autumn in the Piedmont region.

The mountains of Fausto Coppi and the cyclist’s tree: this is the Christmas idea that ASD Fausto Coppi on the road – organizers of the international Granfondo La Fausto Coppi Officine Mattio – are launching for the coming Christmas festivities.

The granfondo is scheduled to leave in Cuneo (north-west Italy) on July 8th, 2018 and it’s one of the most difficult yet beloved of the European panorama.

The devastating fires that struck the Piedmont region, back in October this year, have destroyed thousands of hectares of forests and pastures. A huge damage for the region and for the entire country. In the Cuneo area the Varaita and Stura valleys have been affected, touching the same routes of the granfondo path. These territories, damaged by the fires, will have to be reborn and, for this reason, the organizers of La Fausto Coppi Officine Mattio have had the idea of proposing to the cyclists to adopt a tree. The tree will be planted in the devastated areas.

To contribute, you can buy, for yourself or for a friend, a space (100 Euro fixed fee) in the starting grid. All contributions will go to the “Save the Mountain Routes” beneficial project, (donated for securing the routes and mountain paths crossed by the event). Plus, this will allow you/your friend to start in the front row at the granfondo and, for each contribution, the ASD Fausto Coppi will arrange to have a tree planted.
