Simoni challenges for Human Rights in Milan

In a few days, the Mostra Convegno 2006 trade show will open its doors to the public in Milan, Italy. During the event, Saunier Duval is organising a cycling competition in which journalists and technicians can participate. After five days, the best journalist and Saunier Duval staff member will be selected for the grand finale, where they will compete against star rider Gilberto Simoni.

This season, Saunier Duval-Prodir will be ambassadors for Human Rights, and the team wants to campaign for the first article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, carried by Gilberto Simoni: "Free and equal". Saunier Duval will donate €10 per participant (450 to 500 are expected to take part) to the purchase of a racing bicycle for handicapped riders, which will be given to the Italian Paralympics Committee on Saturday morning, at an event that will be attended by the President of the Paralympics Committee and Gilberto Simoni.
