BIOTEX: MORE THAN A WINNING TEAM
The "cycling" season for Biotex began in the best way possible. Both of the cycling teams sponsored, the Diquigiovanni - Androni and the Barloword, were already gathering victories and rankings in the races before being invited to the 2008 Giro d'Italia. Biotex thanked both teams for the collaboration offered and, like every year, renewed their faith in the teams and the managers.
In 2009, the Diquigiovanni-Androni was one of the leaders in the al Giro d’Italia del Centenario, winning 3 stages.
Moreover, under Gianni Savio and Marco Bellini’s management, they conquered the podium in the Team Category, nabbing third place behind the Lance Armstrong’s Astana and Marc Cavendish’s Columbia.
