"Auguri Italia" from Liquigas-Cannondale
"Happy Birthday Italy", happy birthday Italians. This is the message that Liquigas-Cannondale would like to communicate with its nine riders during 94th Giro d’Italia. A tricolore sticker, affixed on the front of the frame of Cannondale SuperSix Hi-Mod and Nibali’s Cannondale SuperSix EVO, will give the greetings across the country.
Green and blue launched the initiative today at the departure in Alba. Captain Vincenzo Nibali explained, "We thought about this idea because our feeling about this anniversary is really strong. We’re an Italian team with a solid tie with our nation. Our team is composed by Italians coming from North, Center, and South: we will use the Giro to launch an important signal of unification to our country."
Interesting cable routing on the EVO....
