During Strade Bianche, the Trofeo Oro in Italy e the International Rhodes GP the Alé Cipollini and Bardiani-CSF teams highlighted their support for the International Women’s Day by wearing a limited edition ultra-violet glove, now purchasable online at alecycling.com.
The purpose of Alé and of the two pro teams is to inspire and empower women within the sport. A cause close to Alé’s heart, that stands out from the crowd in the cycling world with its majority female staff headed by Alessia Piccolo, a dedicated and passionate cyclist who inspires other women in this business.
Alessia Piccolo, CEO of Alé and President of the Alé Cipollini Women team, said:
“We are living in a time of change with the rights of women in every situation being addressed and bravely challenged. Our ultra-violet glove is simply a symbol of support for those women and their journey to equality, and we hope it shines a light on the pride and motivation that the cycling community has towards their cause.”
