What's Cool In Road Cycling

La Fausto Coppi Officine Mattio and Nalini Together for the 2018 Race Jersey!

The prestigious and historic brand is the official supplier of the La Fausto Coppi Officine Mattio 2018 Race Jersey. La Fausto Coppi’s jersey has a unique charm. It is a symbol of fatigue, of honor, of value. Every year, it is proudly worn by the over 2500 participants to this cycling event, not only during the race but during the entire season. It is the witness of the fact the rider did the race, it proudly says “I was there. I did it!”.

On the other hand, this spectacular and tough granfondo that takes place every year in Cuneo in the first week of July, it is the privilege of many but not all. With its 4125 meters of positive difference in height and with the Colle Fauniera (2481 meters) as GPM, it is certainly one of the toughest granfondo in the whole European scene and, also, one of the most spectacular.

Today, La Fausto Coppi Officine Mattio and Nalini, the prestigious manufacturer of technical cycling apparel, are pleased to announce their partnership for 2018. It will be Nalini who will supply the 2500 jerseys that will be included in the race package and that the competitors at the 31st Fausto Coppi Officine Mattio, next 8 July 2018, will have to wear by regulation.

Two great names with a story that meets, made of commitment and love for cycling, in all its forms. Affinities which found fertile ground for a collaboration agreement. On the one hand Nalini, historical brand, partner of well-known professional teams and also, thanks to the strong will of its owner Claudio Mantovani, supporter of the amateur world; on the other hand, La Fausto Coppi, a prestigious granfondo, one of the five big names on the Italian scene, with over 31 years of history.

The new jersey “La Fausto Coppi Cicli Mattio by Nalini” is a 100% Made in Italy garment, entirely made in the Castel d’Ario (Mantua) factories for design, fabric and production. As always, there are few anticipations that can be given today: it will have the unmistakable style of Nalini and will be officially presented, as tradition requires, during a major event, to be held in Cuneo after the end of the Giro d’Italia.

In addition to supplying the official shirt, Nalini will also produce a collection of high-quality cycling apparel with exclusive design for La Fausto Coppi Officine Mattio. Further information will follow.

“It is a great honor for us as well as a privilege to have Nalini as a partner for our jersey” – commented Emma Mana and Davide Lauro, president and vice president of ASD Fausto Coppi on the Road, which organizes the granfondo – “The shirt is the symbol of our event and always creates great expectations: we are sure that Nalini will honor it, with the quality and the beauty of its design, which is unique and appreciated by the greatest pro riders. We hope this is the beginning of a beautiful collaboration”.

“Nalini has dressed many pro, amateur and granfondo teams over the years. What we missed was an official collaboration with the Granfondo La Fausto Coppi; in reality Nalini was the first manufacturer to produce the jerseys of the very first editions, under the brand La Fausto Coppi”– Mr. Claudio Mantovani, the owner of Moa Sport, Nalini, recalls “and we are proud to collaborate in a partnership between people who love supporting this sport in its most authentic manifestations”.
