Alitalia & Gran Fondo Colnago Partnership
Gran Fondo USA, organizer of the Gran Fondo Colnago series in the United States, has announced a partnership with Alitalia Airlines as the "Official Airlines sponsor". As its official airlines, Alitalia will help make the Gran Fondo Colnago events more accessible to Italian cycling enthusiasts. In addition, for each of the events organized by Gran Fondo USA, Alitalia will offer two free trips to Italy to two lucky participants in the events. What a great idea!
These trips will be organized in conjunction with other partnerships with Gran Fondo USA: Italy Bike Hotels (www.italybikehotels.it), which will offer lodging in hotels that are cycling friendly and Marca Treviso (www.marcatreviso.com), which will host the lucky winners of the contest at its facilities in Treviso at the Prosecco Cycling Classic on October 2, 2011.
