The organisers of the internationally renowned La Fausto Coppi event for 2016 have announced a cooperation with top cycling apparel marque SMS Santini, who will design and produce the jersey that will be worn by the more than 2000 participants in this year’s event.
Traditionally, the design is kept secret until after the Giro d’Italia and will be revealed in early June.
One thing is known and that is the participants will wear the jersey with pride, not just during the event but on many occasions afterwards as a clear statement that “I was there”.
Santini will come out with a complete kit for the 29th edition of this marathon ride, comprising jersey and bibshorts, dedicated to Colle Fauniera, the epic climb that will be tackled by all the La Fausto Coppi riders, taking them up to 2484 metres, with an average gradient of 8% with several points reaching 14%.
We covered the dates of the La Fausto Coppi event and how to sign up back in November.
