“Team Cinelli Santini brings together two pillars of Italian cycling by way of one of Italy’s top Granfondo Cycling teams.
The soul of the squad is embodied by its Manager and President Andrea Capelli. Living by his ‘take no prisoners’ motto Andrea has helped guide the team to podium after podium with over 50 overall wins between 2012 and 2013. When asked to name his favorite rider he replies: “One is not enough, I’ll give you 3: Fausto Coppi, Eddy Merckx, and Marco Pantani” Citing the daunting “Passo dello Stelvio” as his favorite climb and boiled rice at breakfast as something he never misses on raceday.
The new Team Cinelli Santini race kit is handmade in Italy by SMS Santini. “We are delighted to support the team and to do so together with an Italian iconic brand like Cinelli” says Pietro Santini, President and Founder of Santini Maglificio Sportivo, “It’s important for Santini to be present in the Granfondo circuit, where you can feel the true spirit of cycling which comes from the passion for the sport and grows by sharing this passion with your teammates.”
