Distinguishing marks: team of Italian and Japanese cyclists, creating an interesting line-up unique on the professional scene

The NIPPO Vini Fantini team is the only Italo-Japanese professional cycling team. After one year in the Junior category and one in the Continental category, it was placed under the control of the General Manager Francesco Pelosi, in 2015, making the great leap into the Professional category in that year with an Italian licence. That same year, the team took part in its first Giro d’Italia, where it won the Fair Play Award, symbol of the team’s new transparency and enthusiasm. The Nippo Vini Fantini extended its message to all riders, getting countless young people involved in its staff and promoting a philosophy devoted to transparency: it is the only team in the world that publishes on its website all the analysis results shown on the Biological Passports of its riders.
Led by a highly-experienced captain like Damiano Cunego, the project aims to enhance the talent of young Italian and Japanese riders ahead of the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
