The Vini Fantini brand doesn’t give up, it doubles. Yesterday in Castello Caldora the signatures. The brand exporting wine all over the world confirms its involvement in cycling with the NIPPO Vini Fantini team with a 2 year contract, with option on the third year, confirming his involvement in the International project with the goal to grow up talents for Tokyo Olympic Games. Marco Canola has been chosen, as Italian and winning leader of the team, signed a 2 years contract renewal.

A double great news for the NIPPO Vini Fantini team, with a double renewal very relevant for the Italian-Japanese project. The Italian brand Vini Fantini confirms his involvement in cycling as main sponsor of the NIPPO Vini Fantini team for the 2018 and 2019 seasons. The signatures are now officials after a meeting in Castello Caldora by Farnese of this Saturday 15th of July. This is an important confirmation of the strength and vision of the project that looks forward to Tokyo Olympic Games, growing the best Italian and Japanese young talents. 

Together with the renewal of the main sponsor, the signature of one of the leader of the present and the future: Marco Canola. The Italian talent, relaunched by the NIPPO Vini Fantini team, signed a 2 year contract. The 2017 is the season of the relaunch of the ambitions of the Italian talent, able to win a stage in Giro d’Italia 2014. In the current season he already won 4 races, getting 1 point jersey, 1 podium, 25 top10 placements such as the 6th place in the Italian National Championships. 408 UCI points in this 2017 for the Italian talent, that is one of the most winning rider of this year among Italian Professional teams and will be one of the team NIPPO Vini Fantini leaders of the upcoming years.

The General Manager of the team Francesco Pelosi put in evidence with his words the vision of the project: “Our project is growing up year after year, with always more quality, structure and sports results, that for us are a natural consequence of a Professional approach, but never an obsession. The signature of the main sponsor Vini Fantini, of a 2 year contract, with an option for the third year confirms the vision and goals of the team, that made of the International approach and visibility his strength and uniqueness. We are also very happy to announce the contract renewal of Marco Canola, a real winning talent, ambitious and professional, very motivated to relaunch his career. In these first part of 2017 he worked very well with this goal becoming, with his winning attitude our winning leader also for the following seasons.”

Valentino Sciotti, CEO of Vini Fantini, confirms his full involvement in cycling: “The exclusion from #Giro100 has been a bad shot for us, but the professional way of working, the transparency, the International approach of the team and the ambition to improve every day, make this project unique among Italian Cycling Projects, fully matching with our Company Values. So we decided together with Francesco Pelosi, to go for a 2 year renewal, that looks forward to the future. The ROI of our International visibility, as Vini Fantini brand, thanks to this sponsorship has been incredible in these years, both in Europe and in Asia. To associate a brand as sponsor of a serious and clear project of cycling, as it is the NIPPO Vini Fantini project, is something that I would recommend to any International Entrepreneur, also to help the growth of this sports that we all love: cycling.”

Also very important for the team is the renewal of Marco Canola, the most winning rider of the team in 2017 and leader for upcoming season of the NIPPO Vini Fantini team.

These the first words of the rider after the signature: “This 2017 season has been one of the best one of my career, for result but also for the growth that I had the chance to made in this wonderful team. The NIPPO Vini Fantini team is the perfect environment to grow up and our goal is to keep this growth together. The 2 year renewal is the symbol of our common interest. From a personal point of view, I think that my growth must be also in the quality. Maybe I will have to renounce to some placement, to have more focus on some main race as the Milano-Sanremo & the Giro d’Italia stages, if we will have the honor to be invited, and for sure also the Japanese competitions very important for our team.”
