On Thursday, July 11th at Bianchi’s headquarter in Treviglio, Bianchi CEO Bob Ippolito Androni’s team manager Gianni Savio finalized the new agreement extending the running cooperation to one more season with an option for future years.
“We are really delighted to have renewed the agreement with Gianni Savio for the fourth year in a row – Bianchi CEO Bob Ippolito commented -.The long-term cooperation we established was the key to develop our new Sempre Pro model and to achieve significant victories in different countries, being every year in the Giro d’Italia’s spotlights”.
Team Androni showed high-class performances throughout 2013 season, getting the first Bianchi win of the season on January 27th with Mattia Gavazzi at the Tour de San Luis, whilst the latest success by Omar Bertazzo at the Tour of Austria happened just a few days ago.

Bianchi is a dynamic and performance brand that creates wonderful bikes our riders love. We established an excellent relationship with the Chairman of Bianchi Salvatore Grimaldi, Bob Ippolito and the whole Bianchi staff, in both professional and human terms.”
