What's Cool In Road Cycling

Vincenzo Nibali “Special Guest” at the GS Mastromarco Team Presentation

The GS Mastromarco team is one of the best Under23 Italian team based in Tuscany in the small village of Mastromarco near Lamporecchio (Pistoia).

This is the team in which Vincenzo Nibali raced before he joined the professionals. Vincenzo came from Sicily to live here in Mastromarco and ride in this team, it was the best choice for him to become a top rider.

On Sunday, after the Strade Bianche and GP Larciano, the team had their official presentation… of course the special guest was Vincenzo Nibali.

He is always near to the team… and he is one of the sponsors of the team. The team use the same equipment as the Bahrain-Merida team: Merida bikes, Sidi shoes, Elite bottles, Rudy Project helmets and sun glasses.

Of course the team is sponsored by Vincenzo but they do not have the connection with the Prince or the Bahrain management, it is a private project of Nibali for his friends.

We call the riders of this team Mastromarco “young sharks” and our best rider is from Sicily, the same as Vincenzo, his name is Paolo Baccio.

The president of the team, Carlo Franceschi, was Nibali’s sports director in the Under23s and is his 1st fan following him every year during the Giro and the Tour!!!
