The prestigious location of the historic Marrucino Theatre in Chieti will play host to the official presentation of the NIPPO-Vini Fantini cycling team, which features Valagro as one of its main sponsors for the 2016 season.
The event will take place on Saturday, January 9 at 3:30 pm (with free entrance until all places are taken up), and will be hosted by Andrea Berton, a journalist and Head of Service of Gazzetta TV. Berton is a leading professional in Italian journalism and will have the pleasure of introducing VIPs and surprise guests from the world of cycling.
Among the stars expected on stage are all the young Italian talents who launched their careers in the 2015 season, and impressive new cyclists such as the Japanese national champion Kazushige Kuboki, who will wear the national jersey representing his country, the under 23 Asian champion Yuma Koishi, the new Japanese Sporting Director Fukushima, new European faces such as the Italian Gianfranco Zilioli, who finished fourth in the 2015 Italian Championships, and the Slovenian Grega Bole.
After a great first season in the Professional category, the #OrangeBlue team will showcase all the latest developments for the new season, which will once again be led by the quest for growth and strengthening the team ahead of new, ambitious challenges, such as taking young Italian and Japanese cyclists to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
"The passion for challenges, enterprise and change, belief in innovation: these are some of the features that Valagro shares with the #OrangeBlue team and that have led us to renew our collaboration for 2016" explains Marco Rosso, Global Corporate Affairs Director of Valagro. "The journey taken in 2015 by cyclists of the NIPPO-Vini Fantini team teaches us that commitment and passion can be the key to turn the challenge into an opportunity for growth and to aspire to reach new and increasingly ambitious goals. It is a positive vision for the future that reflects the way in which Valagro intends to address the market, today and especially tomorrow".
