RCS Sport and Shimano Italy are proud to announce a three-year partnership for neutral support at a host of UCI WorldTour races, including the Giro d’Italia.
Shimano Italy’s neutral support provision exists to ensure riders can continue to successfully complete their event in the face of mechanical issues. Much like Shimano’s neutral support provision in Spain and the Benelux countries, mechanics in cars or on motorbikes will provide support on the road, while mechanics at neutral support zones at selected points along the route will provide help and assistance to riders.
From 2018 Shimano Italy will provide neutral support at the Giro d’Italia, which will start in Israel on 4 May and finish three weeks later on 27 May.
In-race support from Shimano will be provided also at Strade Bianche, Tirreno-Adriatico, Milano-Sanremo, GranPiemonte, Milano-Torino and Il Lombardia.
