The Adriatica Ionica Race has been presented last Thursday 13 June at the Leonardo Royal Palace near Venice.
The Race is born from an idea of Moreno Argentin, 1986 Colorado Springs world champion «Our idea is to adapt cycling to the territory. As cycling, in fact, there is no other sport that has the strength to promote the territory».
GSG embraced for the second-year-in-raw this idea and supported the AIR as technical sponsor of the leader jerseys. Careful to the fashion guidelines and culture of the territory, GSG has launched a new design for 2019 jerseys seeking to capture all aspects of this race with various innovative aesthetic elements.
We’re very proud to invite Team Novo Nordisk, the world’s first all-diabetes pro cycling team, back to Italy after the astonishing performance at Milano Sanremo! GSG serves as the team’s on-bike apparel partner
