SELLE SAN MARCO ON THE ROADS OF THE TOUR DE FRANCE
The 2018 Tour de France kicks off tomorrow from Noirmoutier En-L’ile. This edition promises to be spectacular. There will be an all-star line-up of starting athletes, with the major names in Tour cycling ready and eager to vie for the yellow jersey.
In addition to the 18 World Tour teams that participate by right in the Grand Boucle, the ASO organisation has decided once again this year to invite 2 Wild Card formations, Team Professional Cofidis and Wanty – Groupe Gobert, both squadrons featuring bikes fitted with saddle models from the Selle San Marco collection.
For these two formations, the Tour de France will be the main event of the competitive season. Considering the excellent results achieved in last year’s edition, this year Team Cofidis and Team Wanty will focus on trying to stand out during the 21 scheduled stages; no doubt they will be jostling to score a victory, which in the Tour de France would be worth an entire season.
This week Andrea Pasqualon paid a visit to Selle San Marco general headquarters in Romano d’Ezzelino, on his way from his nearby home to the start of the Grande Boucle tomorrow with Team Wanty Groupe Gobert. For the occasion Selle San Marco made a new Aspide Team Edition model saddle just for him, customized with the social colours of his team.
