Nalini Tour de France Replica Jerseys Available from Albabici

Simply put, Nalini and Moa Sport dominated the Tour de France: Nalini-clad Movistar rider Nairo Quintana took home both the White jersey for Best Young Rider and the prestigious polka-dot King of the Mountains jersey.

Congratulations, Nairo!

Meanwhile, Tour de France General Classification champ Chris Froome’s Team Sky team kits were assembled by Moa Sport as were the Cannondale kit of Peter Sagan, who won the Green Best Sprinter jersey. That made it a clean sweep for Moa and Nalini.

If you are looking to emulate Quintana’s winning style, Albabici has replica jerseys available, just as he looked on the Tour de France podium.  Here they are:

Sean Martin, CBNC Cycling – Supported by Albabici — Visit Portland En Route to North American Courier Championships

Albabici’s fixed-gear sponsored team continues its march through the Northwest.

LA-based fixed-gear star, blogger and filmmaker Sean Martin stopped in Portland recently for a promotional event at the downtown Chrome store, before heading to Seattle for the North American Courier Championships. Albabici has been a sponsor for CBNC since last year when the importer of premium Italian cycling products provided two Sci’Con bike travel cases for their trip to Fixie Fest 2012 in Jakarta, Indonesia.

This year, Albabici has supported the team with Selle SMP saddles and Forza bars and stems. In addition, Albabici donated a host of Nalini apparel that was auctioned off to raise funds for the team.

While in Portland, Martin caught the attention of the well-regarded bike blog, bikeportland.org, which put together an informative video interview, thanks to reporter Alex Milan Tracey.

If you want to learn more about “fixie culture” and see Sean in action, check out the feature documentary Fixation. Available for streaming on Netflix.  Here’s the movie “one-sheet” poster. That’s Sean on the bottom right.

Pro Kits from Nalini & MOA Sport Again Racers’ Choice at the Tour de France

Many riders chasing the yellow jersey will be wearing apparel from Nalini and MOA Sport; replica gear available from Albabici.com

OXNARD, Calif., and CASTEL D’ARIO, Italy – Many of the favorites chasing the maillot jaune in this month’s 100th Tour de France will be wearing technically advanced apparel from Nalini and MOA Sport, announced Gianluca Caliari, president of Albabici, the California-based US distributor for Nalini apparel.

The Nalini/MOA Sport line up for this year’s Tour de France includes NaliniMovistar, Sojasun, and Francais des Juex (branded BTwin) — and MOA Sport – Astana. In addition, prominent Continental pro teams Christina Watches and Columbia are riding in Nalini, with Raleigh in Moa.

Pro cycling fans looking to emulate their favorite riders are in luck, as all Nalini and MOA Sport replica team apparel is now available, imported exclusively by Albabici (www.albabici.com).

Located in Castel d’Ario, Italy (south of Verona), Nalini/MOA Sport has been serving the pro cycling industry since 1970. One hundred percent of production is done in Italy. A pro cyclist typically requires up to 60 individual pieces of clothing, from bibshorts and jerseys to shoe covers and gloves. A change in design – an additional sponsor, for example – requires 60 new pieces.

The feedback and experience that Nalini gains from working with pro riders goes directly into the design of its apparel collections for every-day riders. For example, the Nalini Summer 2013 Collection features the brand’s Light Compression line, fabrics spun from recycled plastic bottles, and garments made with UV sun-blocking fabric. These technical advancements are then combined with Nalini’s smart Italian design and made-in-Italy craftsmanship.

Fondriest TF3 Reviewed – positively! — in Bicycling

The July issue of Bicycling magazine — America’s #1 cycling publication — reviewed the new Fondriest TF3 1.2, with Campy Athena EPS, Ursus Hybrida wheels and Selle SMP Evolution saddle. In addition to giving the bike a “thumbs up,” reviewer Andrew Bernstein took time to recap Maurizio Fondriest’s epic 1988 Would Championship. Amazingly, last fall, the TF3 gave “Fondriest” its second world championship when Slovania’s Matej Mohoric captured the 2012 Junior World Road Championship. Of course, the Fondriest TF3 1.2 is imported exclusively by Albabici.
