For the year 2022 SCOTT Racing Team confirms the strong partners who kept developing and evolving its special uniform in the last three years: the knitwear factory Rosti, known for its technical excellence on product and image, the premium stretch fiber ROICA™ by Asahi Kasei, internationally recognized for stretch innovation and responsibility, and Sitip, a company specializing in the production of stretch and circular fabrics that combines tradition and innovation with a choice of sustainable production. A uniform created starting from the athletes' needs to offer them the best solution in terms of style and ergonomics, high performance, easy maintenance, perfect fit and sustainability.
This year, the evolution of research and development has led to the creation of new responsible shorts, made with NATIVE-THUNDERBIKE POWER fabric by Sitip in recycled polyamide and ROICA™ EF yarn by Asahi Kasei. A fabric designed for high-performance sports, particularly suitable for making cycling pants for its maximum coverage and UV protection - thanks to ECLIPSE Sun Protection technology - breathability, comfort and fit. Also the shirt has been produced with Sitip recycled fabrics - NATIVE-BICIMANIA and NATIVE-PIRATA - made with Asahi Kasei's ROICA™ EF* sustainable, stretch and certified recycled yarns. This composition, together with Sitip MICROSENSE Soft Performance technology, made the shirt breathable, offering maximum comfort on the skin.
I am thrilled" - says Ivano Camozzi, President of SCOTT Racing Team - "2022 marks the year of the restart and there are all the conditions to make a mark. The team returns to the original formation with 5 riders and this will allow us to be competitive on several fronts. We aim to achieve prestigious results both in Italy and in international races. The icing on the cake is the participation of Juri Ragnoli at the Cape Epic together with the SCOTT Sram Mtb Racing team. I also take this opportunity to thank the historical partners that for 2022 will accompany us in this project.
The SCOTT Racing Team season is on the launch pad. Juri Ragnoli, Jacopo Billi, Cristian Cominelli, Pietro Sarai and Andrea Siffredi have started their preparation, laying the foundations for the long and intense racing season always accompanied by a high performance, yet responsible uniform. The calendar for the long racing season has already been launched. There are more than 40 appointments that will involve all the athletes of the team. Starting with the classic marathons at the beginning of the season and then moving on to unmissable events such as Hero and Dolomiti Superbike. There are great expectations for the races with the blue jersey. The European and World Marathon are the primary objectives. Also planned are trips abroad with the participation of stage races like the Swiss Epic. In the CX sphere we'll get to the heart of the matter at the end of the year and in 2022 there will be a lot to do, starting with the Giro d'Italia of CX where Cristian Cominelli will try to repeat himself after the pink jersey of 2021.
