Vittoria giving away three Pinarello bikes to raise funds for Ukrainian children with cancer

Vittoria is giving away three Pinarello bicycles to raise funds for Ukrainian children with cancer.

The Italian bicycle tyre manufacturer is launching a fundraising campaign by giving away three road-race bicycles of its Servizio Corse, the Vittoria team of mechanics that provides neutral technical assistance to cyclists in the main cycling competitions around the world.

All raised funds will be donated to Soleterre Onlus to ensure timely assistance to children with cancer in Ukraine.

The three Pinarello Dogma K 65.1 carbon frame bicycles are equipped with Shimano Ultegra 11-speed group, Qurano 46 carbon wheels and Vittoria Corsa cotton tubulars. The high-end bicycles are available in sizes 51, 54 and 55 respectively.

“The mission of the Vittoria Servizio Corse is to put itself at the service of others, especially in times of greatest need,” said a statement. “Through this fundraiser, Vittoria and its Servizio Corse intend to commit their altruism to a greater cause.

“The suffering that the war in Ukraine is causing on the population is there for all to see and Vittoria wants to do its part. The proceeds from the fundraising will be donated to the Italian non-profit organisation Soleterre. Thanks to your donation, you will help Ukrainian children with cancer by supporting their care.”
