MEGA’S FIRST GRAND TOUR: GIRO D’ITALIA

Our Mega GPS computers will see their first Grand Tour action at the upcoming Giro d’Italia. Both AG2R La Mondiale and the Israel Cycling Academy will take part in Italy’s 3-week stage race starting May 11, 2019. The two teams will contest the second biggest stage race in the world equipped with their Mega GPS computers. Not only will they be using their devices to follow their race data, but also to be notified of upcoming decisive moments that can be programmed through our custom navigation features.

 

AG2R La Mondiale Pro Cycling Team

AG2R La Mondiale will be led by Alexis Vuillermoz with high GC ambitions, and Tony Gallopin, who will be hunting for stage wins.

“His climbing skills and his recovery capacity over three weeks should allow him to demonstrate his strengths on the Italian roads and aim for a top ten, or even better,” stated directeur sportif Laurent Bondi about Vuillermoz’s potential. “He will be the leader of our team over the next three weeks.”

Israel Cycling Academy

Israel Cycling Academy comes in as a wildcard, but could very well surprise the WorldTour guys with their strong and versatile squad. Italian Davide Cimolai, coming off an overall victory at the recent Vuelta a Castilla y Leon, will lead the team in his first ever Giro d’Italia. He has “big emotion” being able to start his home country’s biggest race for the first time, in addition to leading the team. Watch the moment when he’s told he’ll be leading the squad here.


“All of us at Lezyne couldn’t be more excited to see our GPS computers start a Grand Tour,” said worldwide marketing manager Dillon Clapp. “We developed and produced these computers in house and from the ground up, so seeing all of the hard work be validated at the highest level is an awesome feeling for all of us.”
