Israel Start-Up Nation will ride this year’s Giro d’Italia with a special dark red jersey, showcasing our Italian sponsor Vini Fantini and beautifully designed by Israeli clothing company Jinga.
Usually, the ISN team races in the blue and white colors of Israel, but this Giro will be different. For the Italian Grand Tour, the dark red of the Vini Fantini wines will adorn the ISN kit, blended nicely with the well-known blue from the original jersey.
Patrick Bevin: “I like this one. I think it’s a really cool design. It’s a nice gesture to change the kit for our Italian sponsor Vini Fantini while racing the Giro. I really think it looks great!”
Valentino Sciotti, President of Fantini Group: “We thank Sylvan [Adams, co-owner], Ron [Baron, co-owner] and the whole team for this beautiful gift. It’s a tremendous opportunity for us to be under the spotlight in the most important race in Italy. We will live this moment with immense joy and as a further incentive to love this sport even more.”
Aviad Izrael, Founder and Director of Jinga: “Wine, Italy and cycling – three things we all love! The Giro-Fantini project is one of our all-time favorite projects. The sweet blend of wine with the ISN colors, items that were carefully developed with feedback from the best riders in the world, and of course it was a lot of fun at the design table! We are excited to introduce this limited-edition set for the cycling world to enjoy. Good ride, good wine, good times.”
