SELLE SAN MARCO ONCE AGAIN ON TOP OF THE WORLD IN ITALY WITH SAMUELE PORRO
Samuele Porro has doubled down on last year’s success to recapture the title of Italian Marathon Champion. This is the fourth Italian title that the athlete from Team Trek Selle San Marco has scored in this specialty, after winning in 2014, 2015 and 2018.
This year the Sirente Bike Marathon in Aielli (AQ) was the race that assigned the tri-coloured jersey in this specialty. In spite of the blistering heat, Porro and his team mates dominated the race, remaining in the lead from the very start. In the last downhill Porro managed to break away from the bunch, making it to the finish line with an almost 3-minute lead over the chasing pack. Fabian Rabensteiner from Team Trek Selle San Marco also had an excellent race, closing out in fourth place.
As Samuele Porro pursued his fourth Italian title, he had the full support of the Mantra Superleggera model from the Selle San Marco collection. Mantra Superleggera is an extreme synthesis of performance, technology and quality materials, all wrapped into an Open-Fit version saddle. The opening has been redesigned, applying the concept of New Ergonomics to achieve the perfect combination of exertion points and support points. New ergonomics and a new design make the Mantra Superleggera an aggressive saddle that features an aesthetic which aligns with the most technologically advanced frames.
