Castelli 2016 Castelli has spent years supporting road, mountain bike and triathlon professionals by providing them top level clothing apparel that is specific to their needs. The Cannondale Pro cycling team has been a UCI level professional road team since 2009. In order to maximize every advantage, the team has required clothing that: • Stays dry when they sweat • Keeps them cool in hot weather • Blocks out cold wind and rain • Provides a smooth aerodynamic surface without restricting movement • Supports bodies in 100k+ races through the mountains Castelli has supported the riders of the team with the best cycling apparel that has epitomized its value after 100 years of searching for the right combination of fabrics and design to support the needs of a professional cyclist. The Cannondale Pro team has left its footprint at some of the biggest Grand Tours. This year, the team has taken in Rigoberto Urán, a two-time Giro d’Italia podium finisher and an Olympic road-race silver medalist. Urán has proven his winning style in both stage and one-day races. The second big star, Pierre Rolland, has finished fourth overall in the Giro d’Italia and 10th in the Tour de France. His most dramatic victory was in 2011 when he summited the Alpe d’Huez with incredible strength and determination to take the win. This historic mountain top win began his career as a top level climber who can start a mountain stage with the intention of winning. On the trails, Castelli supports the Cannondale Factory Racing Team riders who dominate on the trails across the world while still having fun by traveling with friends on two wheels and staying overnight in a hut way up in the mountains. These riders require durable cycling clothing that protects from the elements and all the debris on a trail. Olympic medalist, Marco Aurelio Fontana, and World Cup podium finisher, Manuel Fumic, have fans cheering for them all around the world. Castelli supports Ironman world champions who require clothing that enhance their performance in the water, on a bike and a long run. Castelli’s tri-clothing doesn’t get weighed down in the water and dries immediately on the bike leg. The clothing fits like a second skin so it moves with and supports the triathlete’s body. The padding in the shorts protects in the aero position but disappears on the run. Castelli provides its best tri-clothing to some of the top triathlete’s in the world. One of Castelli’s rock starts is Heather Jackson who feels triathlons are so addictive because there is always something you can do better. Jackson finished 1st in the Ironman Oceanside and Escape from Alcatraz. Michelle Vesterby is known as “the Bubbly Dane” because she is always smiling. While the bubbly personality is charming, Vesterby is an animal out on the course. She finished 4th in the 2015 Ironman World Championships. Andi Dreitz is the world record holder with the fastest half distance bike split worldwide (1:57:21 h/90k) and Victor del Corral has done what is rarely even attempted—performing at two Ironmen back to back and winning--Corral won the Ironman in Arizona and the Ironman Florida when there was only a two week rest between both body breaking races.
