Bianchi's light blue returns to the world's best races
Few bike brands have that mythical aura as that transmitted by Bianchi, a company that has managed to make light blue a color that all cycling fans immediately associate with them since the times when "un uomo solo al comando...", with the figure of the great Fausto Coppi, turned the Giro d'Italia upside down on the legendary Izoard ramps.
Following the announcement made by the French squad Arkéa-Samsic, which finally obtained a license in the World-Tour category for the next three seasons, the change of supplier is certified, abandoning the Canyon bikes they had been using for the last three seasons in favor of Italian bikes.

Bianchi's arrival at Arkéa-Samsic will mark the launch of its new Oltre RC, the brand's new aerodynamic model, which surprised with its curious spoilers, designed to reduce wind resistance and move the airflow away from the rider. However, Arkéa-Samsic riders will not be able to enjoy this solution as it has not been homologated by the UCI.
In addition to the new Oltre RC, the French squad's riders will have at their disposal the Especialissima climber and the Aquila, the time trial machine developed by Bianchi.
Following the announcement of the agreement between Bianchi and Arkéa-Samsic, the general manager of the French team, Emmanuel Hubert, highlighted the union between the Breton will represented by his team and the Italian excellence of Bianchi, wishing to write new and glorious pages in the long history of the transalpine firm.
He also had words for Canyon, whom he thanked for the work during these seasons and the excellent collaboration carried out.
