Always together on the roads of cycling: Kumho Tyre official supplier for UAE Team Emirates
The cycling season is in full swing. The Giro d’Italia brought not only bicycles to the roads of the peninsula, but also all the vehicles required to support the activities of all the teams.
UAE Team Emirates is the formation featuring Italian Champion Fabio Aru, European Champion Kristoff and Florence 2013 World Champion Rui Costa. During the Corsa Rosa and for the entire 2018 season, they can count on the safety and quality of Kumho Tyres.
The sports club under general manager Giuseppe Saronni and the Korean tyre manufacturer have enjoyed a partnership that has lasted 11 years; all the team’s cars, buses, trucks and vans are equipped with Kumho Tyres as they travel the roads of the world that have led to so many successful achievements. Next big appointment: the Tour de France in July.
Giuseppe Saronni, general manager for UAE Team Emirates, expressed his satisfaction with the Kumho Tyre collaboration: “To understand the importance of an official supplier like Kumho Tyre, just have a look at the number of kilometres our vehicles cover in a year: we are on the road for more than 60,000 kilometres, in every type of weather and on all kinds of road surfaces.
From the cobblestones in the Paris-Roubaix to the Walls in the Tour of Flanders, from the Pyrenees descents in the Tour de France to the more than 7000 kilometres spent driving in the Giro d’Italia, every one of our vehicles travels safely, thanks to Kumho Tyres”.
