Wilier Triestina (Italy) - Press Release: The Wilier-Pirelli Factory Team is born: two of Italy’s best together in one international top team.
It’s official: the new Wilier Triestina – Pirelli Factory Team launches with the very specific aim of placing Made in Italy excellence at the top of world mountain bike racing.
The Wilier Triestina-Pirelli project combines two names that represent Italian excellence in the cycling sector to create much more than just a team: it’s a dream of bringing an Italian team back to the top rungs of international MTB racing, in both cross country and long distances.
The Wilier Triestina – Pirelli Factory Team continues the outstanding work carried out in past years by team manager Marco Trentin, with the added bonus of new athletes and, notably, new partners who recognised the value of the Wilier Triestina – Pirelli project from the outset.
A group consisting of 8 riders among which stand out the tricoloured jerseys of Italian champions Fabian Rabensteiner and Giada Specia, the Belgian champion Wout Alleman, but also the rich prize lists of Daniel Geismayr, Samuele Porro, Simone Avondetto, Gioele De Cosmo and Janis Baumann.
