TEAM GIRO’S WINNING YEAR

For us at Giro, enjoying the ride isn’t all about racing and winning…but winning sure is fun, and our team did a whole lot of that in 2016. We are honored to work with such an amazing group of professional athletes who ride to victory in every discipline. With over 240 total wins this year, there are too many great results to list, but there are a few that deserve to be highlighted:

  • Enduro World Series Overall Champion – Richie Rude (Yeti / Fox Shox Factory Race Team)
  • World Cup Downhill Overall Champion – Aaron Gwin
  • World Cup Cross Country Overall Team Champions – Clif Pro Team
  • World Cup Cross Country Overall Champion – Catharine Pendrel (Clif Pro Team)
  • Alexander Kristoff (Katusha Cycling Team) – 12 wins, 3 green (points) jerseys, 1 Giro visit & helmet development meeting
In addition to these impressive results, we would like to send special congratulations to our Olympic Gold medalists and UCI World Champions.

OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALISTS

WORLD CHAMPIONS

Victories are amazing, but what truly feels like winning to us is knowing that we’ve done something to enhance your ride. Whether you’re lining up for races, commuting in the city, shredding trails, or enjoying long miles on the pavement, we are grateful that you take Giro along for the ride. We hope 2016 brought you many great memories on the bike, and we hope 2017 brings even more.
