On May 22nd the 14th Giro d´Italia stage finished in Asolo just 5 miles from the MSTINA Cyclewear factory.
To mark the occasion former professional Road Race Champion Marcel Tinazzi (MD of MSTINA) has taken the opportunity to organise an after stage party inviting some friends. Amongst the guests there were 4 times Paris-Roubaix winner Roger De Vlaeminck, Giro d´Italia and Tour de France winner Laurent Fignon, Claudio Chiappucci, Danilo Di Luca, 5 times cyclocross world champion Renato Longo, Olympic Champion Giovanni Lombardi, RR world champions Moreno Argentin and Alessandro Ballan and many other current and former professional riders.
ProSport Distribution MD Gianluca Cappello attended the party and said "It was a great night and a fantastic opportunity to have dinner with some old friends and people who have made history in the cycling sport. At one point we counted that around the tables there were 11 former professional world champions".
This is the 4th year that Marcel Tinazzi has organised a Giro d´Italia after stage party which has seen Bernard Hinault, former team mates Sean Kelly and Freddy Maertens and Raphael Geminiani and Joop Zoetemelk amongst the guests.
We are already looking forward to 2011!
