The Sella pass enveloped in clouds, Pordoi’s 2200m of climbing in the pouring rain, Gardena battered by the wind: the weather added to the epic nature of the first UYN Biking Ambassador Day, which took place on Saturday 22 June against a captivating backdrop - the Dolomites.
Chiara Masini Luccetti, Alessandra Derme, Caterina Vacchi, Anna Tomassini, Andrea Rossi, Daniele Marega, Massimo Perozzo and Ciro Barone are this Italian sportswear brand’s new biking ambassadors.
These eight #Uynners share UYN’s irresistible passion for cycling and the desire to seek maximum performance and unleash one’s own nature.
The group, together with the UYN staff, had the chance to cycle the Dolomites’ grand passes, with the added bonus that they were closed to motor traffic for the 2019 Sellaronda Bike Day. It was the perfect opportunity to get to know the world of UYN and to put our high quality products to the test on legendary roads.
The #Uynner team wore the high-performance Alpha Biking kit, with the jersey, bib shorts and short-sleeve windproof jacket.
These offered the cyclists optimal protection throughout their four-hour ride. The ambassadors were also given the windproof Alpha gilet, cycling-specific Light socks, Motyon base layer - designed specifically for high intensity sports in summer - arm warmers, leg warmers and kit for downtime, all bearing the UYN brand.
And from the Dolomites our new #Uynners now head to social media, where they will tell the stories of their adventures on the bike, together with UYN. Let’s introduce them:
