Race Photos from Vittoria Shoes

Our friends at Vittoria shoes sent us some interesting racing pictures. We thought you would enjoy them.

Pantani: Tour de France

This is Pantani winning a stage; we believe it's the 1997 Tour de France.

Luperini: Giro d'Italia

Fabiana Luperini wins the Assisi stage in the 1998 women's Giro d'Italia. Note from Chairman Bill: I know the hill she just came up is a really steep one---we were there on our trip;the exhaustion of the rider behind her is quite understandable. Fabiana's apparent lack of fatigue is astounding. For a view of Assisi from a distance, click here. For some other photos in and around Assisi, click here.

In 2022 I found this promotional card. This should be 1998 given that it's a GC Mimosa/Sprint team card. Though the team's official shoe supplier was Time, Fabiana wore Vittoria. In this picture she is wearing yellow Blitzes, the same shoes Marco Pantani wore that year for his Tour/Giro double.


Fabiana Luperini wins again.

Luperini: Giro d'Italia

Another one of Luperini's countless wins. Note from Chairman Bill: I really like this picture, and I wanted to use it in an ad, but everyone else thought the happy guy in front is too distracting....
