Vittoria Industries of Boston, Massachussets has joined the 2014 Tour of the Battenkill as the Official Tire Sponsor. Vittoria will provide neutral race support through the famed Servizio Corse during the weekend. This is the same Servizio Corse that the racers depend on in such famed races as Milano-San Remo, Strade Bianche, and the Giro d’Italia.

“We are privileged and excited about the upcoming race, and being the Official Tire of the Tour of the Battenkill fits perfectly with what we are about - taking yourself to the next level,” says Vittoria Road Marketing Manager, John McKone. “Vittoria has been involved with the most difficult and inspiring racing events in the world, winning more Paris-Roubaix than any other tire brand. We now are becoming part of the history of the Battenkill event, which our Pavé tire is the perfect tool to challenge the conditions of the course.”
