RIDE GREEN GIRO D’ITALIA
For Giro d’Italia the environmental impact is a priority. In 2016 it launched Ride Green – the sustainability program linked to the Corsa Rosa, this year in its sixth edition – of which Sitip is Official Partner 2022.
The goal of this project is based on waste sorting through a system of traceability and monitoring of waste and recycling of materials, promoting the protection of the areas crossed by the Giro d’Italia.
The circular economy, social responsibility and the reduction of emissions are just some of the common goals with Sitip, which constantly invests in sustainable growth and on an equally responsible production system.
The world of sport, as well as that of companies, makes an important contribution to environmental policies for a common result: the safeguarding and protection of the planet.
2022 marks the year of Sitip as Official Supplier of the historic Tirreno-Adriatico competition in its 57th edition, with the supply of its Trophy fabric: light, breathable, slim fit, stretch and quick-drying, perfect for accompanying the challenges of the athletes of the two seas, supporting them with high standards of technical performance and absolutely comfortable skin feel.
The Sitip logo will be present on the 4 jerseys, while its fabrics will be protagonists from 7th to 13th March in the evocative landscapes of central Italy.
GIRO DI SICILIA
GRANFONDO STRADE BIANCHE
Another exceptional partnership is that which sees Sitip Official Partner of Gran Fondo Strade Bianche, with start and finish in Siena.
Once again Sitip wants to show closeness to professional athletes as well as to amateurs, recognizing itself in their own same values: determination, passion, challenge, but also talent and excellence.
Sitip will also have the exclusivity of a customized sector, precisely number 7 (San Martino in Grania) and number 8 (Monte Sante Marie), at the Strade Bianche professionals, a privileged position that brings us closer to competing athletes, to experience sport together with the same passion and energy as ever.
AND GRAN FONDO IL LOMBARDIA
A widespread and important presence that confirms the company’s desire to be protagonist with a special bond and a unique passion in the most important races that have made, and make, the history of cycling in our country.
An all-sporting, all-Italian love that is a promise of commitment and sharing.
GRANFONDO NOVE COLLI
Sitip supplied Gobik with the fabrics for the jerseys of Nove Colli, one of the biggest Italian cycling events and the oldest and most prestigious “granfondo” of international cycling, whose “first edition” dates back to 1971.
The name of the race itself suggests its difficulty: 9 different and demanding climbs await the athletes, a route that puts even the most trained sportsmen to the test!
For the creation of the jerseys for this historic competition we used recycled fabrics from the NATIVE Sustainable Textiles line – a technology that is applied to fabrics produced with recycled yarns and low environmental impact chemicals, implementing the GRS (Global Recycle Standard) standard. A collection that attests Sitip as a company that operates with a circular business model, in line with the most recognized certifications, and strongly oriented towards the future.
Since the first edition in 1996, Sitip has been the Official Sponsor of the “International Granfondo Felice Gimondi”, a historical “partnership” that plunges its roots in the deep friendship that has linked our founder Luigi Pezzoli with the champion Felice Gimondi.
To celebrate and honor this great friendship, Sitip supports with commitment and affection the event linked to the memory of the great sportsman, which is held in the Bergamo valleys.
A race with a “slow ride” philosophy, amateur and lived with pure passion, where fun and healthy competition coexist harmoniously, united by the intense affection that binds the athletes who participate to the famous and beloved Gimondi.
And Sitip fully shares the philosophy of this competition: the Granfondo is an important showcase for our province, the bicycle is increasingly an object of worship and promotion and Gimondi is a contribution to the rebirth of the territory.
In the same province where Sitip is located and operates, on the same roads on which Felice Gimondi trained every day without saving himself, and which every year are filled with stories and emotions, over 88,000 cyclists have participated in the event and to whom Sitip wants to be alongside.
