Selle SMP Flooded

Heavy rain over northern Italy since Sunday has caused widespread flooding in the Veneto region, forcing thousands from their homes and millions of euro of destruction. More rain is expected in the coming days. One company that has been devastated is Selle SMP, maker of the saddle famous for its design. Their manufacturing and warehouse locations were both extensively damaged.

  1. This really sad news about our friends at SMP, official supplier to CycleItalia. We hope everyone can get back to normal very soon.
