Scapin MTB Team chooses BPeople saddles for 2013

BPeople Saddlesis renewing its partnership with SCAPIN Factory MTB Team, a remarkable team that will be able to count on plenty of new athletes in 2013.


Among them is Eduardo Jimenez Vargas from Ramiriqui, Colombia. After having been a road rider for six years, Eduardo is now ready to win on a mountain bike as well with SCAPIN Factory MTB Team. A reconfirmed Julio Humberto Caro will be joining Vargas to form a pair on the attack for the highest positions in the classifications in the marathon and point to point races taking place on the circuits for the Scapin Italian MTB Awards, Coppa Toscana MTB and Mountain Bike Tour Toscana. Other newcomers include Vincenzo Garofalo, an ex-professional from Noto, Gabriele Giuntoli and Simone Tassini, the young mountain bike talent from Tuscany who last year commanded several podiums in the major races on the marathon and granfondo circuits.

The SCAPIN Factory MTB Team will also be well-represented in other amateur categories: in the Master 1 Cristian Guglielmi will be paired with new arrival from Cremona Stefano Severgnini, who took home the bronze medal at the European Marathon Championships in Graz last year. In his third year with the team from MontemurloMatteo Dolfi will move up to the Master 2 category and for Daniele Gherardini 2013 will see a move up to the higher category. Two guys from Florence, Nicola Morozzi, a loyal knight to the team from Montemurlo since its inception, and new entry Lamberto Tozzi, will represent  SCAPIN Factory MTB Team in the Master 4 category, while several-time winner Gianluca Galardini will continue to broaden his path in the Master 5 as he vies for the Italian National marathon.

BPeople will support the team during its long competitive season with their brand new Vincere Ava, a saddle that combines all the best attributes of the top BPeople models with a new design and new padding that has been completely redeveloped (flatter, softer and wider in the back) to meet the needs of even the most extreme bikers.
