The Giro del Trentino Melinda has signed an agreement with Giessegi, an important Italian sportswear manufacturer. The Vallà di Riese Pio X company, created by former pro Simone Fraccaro will provide all the official jerseys of the race, which will reward the leaders of the four classifications: the Cyclamen Jersey for the leader of the General Classification, the Green Jersey for the leader of the Mountains Classification, and the Red Jersey for the leader of the Sprint Classification. Also, the Treviso-based company will sponsor the White Jersey, which will be worn by the leader of the Young Classification-Giessegi.
In 2014, Giessegi celebrated an important milestone, its 30th year in the business of producing technical apparel for cycling at the highest level. The founder of the company, Simone Fraccaro, was a professional road and track cyclist between 1974 and 1984. Regarded as one of Francesco Moser’s most important “lieutenants”, he had a long career, during which he raced in the first edition of the Circuito degli Assi di Arco, the historic race that lives today through the Giro del Trentino Melinda.
The high reliability of the Giessegi clothing is guaranteed by the constant work of choosing the materials, the attention to details, from the applied research to the design, from the quality control of the production process to several tests on models of various lines. Innovation, reliability and style are the hallmarks of the Giessegi jerseys, made with technologically advanced fabrics. For example, the carbon fiber helps the athlete’s comfort by accelerating the moisture’s expulsion and protecting the body from absorbing static energy, electro smog and UV rays, whilst bio ceramic tissues, by using body’s infrareds, improve blood circulation while reducing the fatigue to the benefit of performance in endurance disciplines such as cycling.
