Italian manager Gianni Savio’s cycling team has delighted us for years with a jersey full of sponsors of all kinds. For a moment she was shivering and shivering because with Drone Hopper he had attracted another sponsor (main).
Fortunately, however, the team gave up only the Reds; The shepherds combination remained on the shirt and pants. The D and H of Drone Hopper, an industrial drone company, dominate the jersey, but then, below and over it, Savio has found a place for anything and anyone willing to pay anything.
The result is a uniform in which there is only room for care around the crotch area. The question now is which company has the balls to go sponsor there…
Below you can see the kit in action at the Colombian Vuelta al Tachira – the team has traditionally hired Colombians – and below this jersey when it was introduced.

By the way, behind many sponsors is an excellent business model from Savio. His vision is to bind as many sponsors as possible, so that the team doesn’t fall if they withdraw, go bankrupt or something.
