Vittoria Launches Shop-Team Sponsorship Program
Vittoria is pumped to announce its new Shop-Team program that offers sponsorship to local team throughout the U.S. Along with its distributed brands, 3T and Selle Italia, Vittoria’s Shop-Team program helps the riders who help the shops.
“We want to support our shops in supporting their teams and clubs,” Vittoria Rep Derek Griggs said. “It needs to go both directions, this is very symbiotic.”
Core riders demand a lot from their gear, and they also influence their local riding community. Vittoria thinks you should benefit from being a dedicated rider and helping grow the sport we love.
In order to get hooked up with Vittoria’s Shop-Team Sponsorship Program, local bike clubs and teams place group orders through their local shop. To get on board with the program, shop owners simply need to contact their local Vittoria rep. Vittoria, 3T, and Selle Italia will allow two annual orders per team with this hook up.
Vittoria aims to build the relationship between the riders, their local shop, and the gear they use.
“Local bike teams and clubs directly influence other riders’ purchasing decisions,” DG Cycles owner Charlie Goodspeed said. Located in Nashua, N.H., DG Cycles is a full service bicycle dealership servicing all brands of bicycles. “It’s important we support the core riders in our community in order to grow our sport. This is a great program where everyone benefits.”
Local mountain bike clubs and teams demand the same from their gear as professional athletes. They are at the center of the sport and can provide feedback on product.
“Our team is in constant need of new gear,” State 9 Racing Team rider Andy Gould said. “Vittoria, 3T, and Selle Italia make top of the line bike products and we’re happy to benefit from the Shop-Team program.” Based in Concord, N.H., State 9 Racing competes in road, cyclocross, enduro and XC events.
