VERONA, Italy (October 7) – The new Liquigas-Bianchi team has been presented during the Cycling World Championships in Verona. On the occasion of its 120th anniversary, Bianchi reasserts its position within the world of the on-road competitions in grand style in the year of birth of the Pro Tour.
120 years of cycling history, of champions, legendary feats and great
conquests. From Tommaselli in 1898, through Girardengo and the
unforgettable wins of Fausto Coppi, the successes of the great Felice
Gimondi up to the triumphs of Marco Pantani: Bianchi never stops. On the
contrary, the start-up of the new outfit Liquigas-Bianchi marks the solid
presence in the racing world for over a century of the company based in
Treviglio. A continuity that Bianchi wishes to underline on the occasion of
its 120th anniversary, celebrating with the debut of this new team.
The successes recently captured by Bianchi, from Ullrich last year, through
the outstanding win of Magnus Backstedt at the Paris-Roubaix, up to the
conquest of the Tricolour Jersey, have been for Bianchi solid reasons to
reaffirm its competitive spirit alongside a prestigious brand such as
Liquigas. The important partnership with Liquigas means for Bianchi a further
confirmation within the high level professional cycling: “The
Liquigas-Bianchi team is born from the significant partnership between
Bianchi and Liquigas, two leading brands worldwide. The soundness and coherence which distinguish Liquigas in the cycling field, contributed to involve Bianchi in this exciting cooperation which,we feel sure, will give us and all our fans, great satisfaction and unforgettable emotions”. (MH)
