The three-year agreement includes the sponsorship of the UAE Tour, Il Lombardia and from 2021 Strade Bianche. Bianchi is also official sponsor of Giro Virtual and Giro-E, the first multi-stage event for electric-assisted bikes

Bianchi’s iconic celeste and?La Gazzetta dello Sport’s pink are now united in an exciting new international partnership.?For three years starting from 2020, Bianchi will be the?official sponsor?and?exclusive bike brand?of?the Giro d’Italia, the most famous and iconic Italian race on the international stage, organised by?RCS Sport?and La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The collaboration between Bianchi and RCS Sport springs from shared intents and a common vision, which aims at internationalising Italian excellence through sporting events like the Giro d’Italia. The race reaches more than?800 million people?in more than?200 countries around the world.

The three-year agreement between Bianchi and RCS Sports also includes other important fixtures of the?WorldTour?calendar. Along with the Giro d’Italia, Bianchi is also Official Sponsor of the?UAE Tour, the only WorldTour stage race held in the?United Arab Emirates,?Il Lombardia, ‘the race of the fallen leaves’ and one of cycling’s five Monuments, as well as the amateur sportive, the?Gran Fondo Il Lombardia. In addition,?from 2021?the partnership will be further enriched by a unique event in the picturesque Tuscan hills,?Strade Bianche. As part of the agreement with RCS Sport, Bianchi will supply the bikes for the technical assistance service operated by?Shimano.

The collaboration with?Giro-E?is another strategic asset for Bianchi. Bianchi is Official Partner of the event with?Bianchi Lif-E, cycling’s very first electric intelligence mobility programme. Bianchi will supply the event with the?Aria e-road?carbon model.

Bianchi will also be official sponsor of the new-born?Giro Virtual, taking place from?April 18th?until May 10th?where professionals and amateurs will have the chance to ride the best stages of the Giro d’Italia 2020.


As the Giro presents all that is beautiful about Italy to the world, Bianchi is proud to release the all new?Aria – Bianco Italia. It is an exclusive and limited edition of the Aria in clean ‘frost white’ with the?Italian tricolore?inserted on the chain stay and purple-turning-green inserts.

The new Aria – Bianco Italia edition is for those who never stop dreaming and celebrates the launch of the Giro Virtual. It is?available on the?Bianchi official e-store?only for a limited duration time, April 15 – May 10.


Salvatore Grimaldi (Bianchi Owner and Knight of Labour): “This partnership between Bianchi and the Giro is a dream come true. At this dramatic and important moment around the world, we felt the time was right to realise the partnership because now more than ever, the people of Italy and those around the world need a reason to dream, a way of looking forward to the coming rebirth. It is a historic agreement between two big Italian names, both born in Milan and able to export the best of Italy through one of the most exciting and popular sports in the world, cycling”.

Fabrizio Scalzotto (Bianchi CEO): “We believe that the bicycle used both for racing and non-competitively will be fundamental to the resumption of normal life after Covid-19. The Giro is more than a bike race, it is a cultural phenomenon, it is a shared piece of human heritage. That’s why we have decided to announce our collaboration now, when Italy needs a reason to get back in the saddle.

Bianchi is a market-oriented company, and with this in mind we will adopt an innovative approach compared to traditional sponsorships. We are looking to develop activations and collaborative marketing projects to get even closer to our customers in Italy and all over the world, not only with our products, but also with our values of innovation and inspiration.

RCS Sport and La Gazzetta dello Sport’s events and communication platform will provide effective support in pursuing our strategy across the more than 60 countries worldwide where Bianchi is distributed.
