La Fausto Coppi 2020 – Officine Mattio SPECIAL EVENT



La Fausto Coppi 2020 - Officine Mattio SPECIAL EVENT


Talking about the GrandFondo FaustoCoppi it’s actually talking about a love story between cycling and the Granda Province. Its main town, Cuneo, surrounded by the Eastern Alps, has always been the point of departure and the arrival of this legendary cycling race. While, its mountains roads with steep climbs and hairpin turns are the background to the several challenges  athletes have to deal with during this amazing course. 

This year, the GranFondo Fausto Coppi it’s in its 33th Edition, but its epic aura has not changed over time, making the event one of a kind. Since its first edition in 1987, the event has seen thousands of athletes competing with the same jersey and the same fighting spirit. For this reason, Officine Mattio is proud of being the main sponsor of this tough competition that pays homage to the iconic Campionissimo, to sport and, above all, to the territory: the event brings thousands of people from all over the world to discover and experience this magnificent corner of Italy!
