We will support the UCI PRO TEAM Drone Hopper – Androni for the 2022 season
Bottecchia Cicli is proud to announce that it will support the UCI PRO TEAM Drone Hopper – Androni (formerly known as Androni Sidermec) for the 2022 season.
The Italian team headed by Gianni Savio and Marco Bellini will race the 2022 season again on the saddle of Bottecchia. The riders of the Best Italian UCI PRO TEAM, 3 times Italian champion in the last 4 years, will count on the top of the Bottecchia Reparto Corse range: EMME 4 SQUADRA and AEROSPACE SQUADRA, both already Italian champion bikes.
“Bottecchia’s history is inextricably linked to racing and competitions. We have been working on the renewal for some time, and the Giro del Veneto and the Veneto Classic were key moments to confirm a partnership that has characterized Bottecchia’s commitment to the racing world for years. The feedback from professional athletes contributes in an important way to the development of technology in the high-end products of the Reparto Corse. Thanks to this precious collaboration, in fact, we have perfected extremely performing products that have allowed the athletes of the team to reach important goals. ” These are the words of Diego Turato, CEO of Bottecchia, who adds: “It is clear that the relationship between Bottecchia and the best Italian UCI PRO TEAM team is much more than a sponsorship. This is the sixth year that we have been next to Savio and Bellini’s team, proudly supporting an Italian team of young talents who know how to compete with passion and tenacity, putting in every competition what we put into our products: maximum commitment and heart. “
Gianni Savio said on the renewal of the contract: “The one with Diego Turato, but also with Marco Sguotti and Marco Turato is a relationship that over the years has evolved into a friendship. In Bottecchia we have found a partner with whom we share values and ideals, and this has been essential to achieve all the successes the team has achieved in recent years. I would like to remind you that it was precisely on Bottecchia bicycles that many athletes of the caliber of Davide Ballerini, Mattia Cattaneo, Fausto Masnada, Andrea Vendrame, Ivan Sosa and above all Egan Bernal, who won the Tour de France in 2019 and Giro d’Italia in 2021, were formed. 2022 will be a year of great ambitions, where as always we will give our best to honor racing, but above all those who believe in us like Bottecchia”.
For the 2022 season, the Drone Hopper – Androni team will count on the Bottecchia top of the range. Climbing men will have at their disposal EMME 4 SQUADRA, the competitive road bike perfect for long distances, which gives its best uphill thanks to the super light frame and its stiffness, but also downhill, where it makes the difference thanks to the its aerodynamics with internal cables and extraordinary driveability.
Fast men can count on AEROSPACE SQUADRA, the ultra-fast aerobike with disc brakes and Internal Routing Cables technology with cables fully integrated into the frame that maximizes aerodynamic efficiency and enhances driveability and design precision. A perfect bike for sprint finishes and surprisingly fast on all types of routes.
The new extraordinary versions of the two models dedicated to the Drone Hopper Androni team for the 2022 season will be presented to the public shortly.
