Laika is pleased to announce its new partnership with the Giro d'Italia Giovani Under 23. Having always had a close bond with the world of sports, Laika is to support the 42nd youth edition of the historic cycling race with a Kosmo Low-profile 512 and an Ecovip Low-profile 409.

The prestigious international race will take place from Thursday 13th until Sunday 23rd June 2019, spanning 10 legs across 5 Italian regions: Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Lombardy, Trentino Alto Adige and Veneto. The Giro d'Italia Giovani Under 23 is an increasingly international sporting and media event: a generous 13 foreign teams from 10 different countries will attend, out of a total of 29 participating teams. The Italian teams will be selected by the Italian Cycling Federation according to the score acquired between 1st January and 12th May 2019.

The event draws great crowds: more than 100,000 spectators are expected, along with more than 1.5 million expected on-line contacts from all over the world. All the legs of the race will be broadcast on Rai Sport, which will dedicate coverage of the race on a daily basis, and also available in live streaming in 30 countries.

The Kosmo 512 and Ecovip 409 Low-profiles are the ideal travel companion for the race: the strong polyurethaneframe makes them reliable and stable on the go. The generous internal height (213 cm in the Kosmo 512 and 210 cm in the Ecovip 409) allows you to enjoy some rest and relaxation in all the various areas of the motorhome. The large-size garage (218 x 90|120 x 109 cm in the Kosmo, and 217 x 115 x 116|88 in the Ecovip) guarantees maximum stowage space, allowing you to take everything you need along with you, including bicycles!
