„WHO THINK HE IS SOMETHING,
With this philosophy, the team AMORE E VITA - KIBAG - OBOR, licensed in the USA, has developed from a very simple sports team, founded in *2016, to a professional amateur team. Team spirit, appreciation, reliability, stringent and sustainable sponsor identification and trust are the cornerstones of our cooperation. It is important to us that every team rider has a professional life in addition to their sport.
Despite the double burden of work and sport, the team riders are able to show top performances year after year at national and international level and compete for victories on an equal footing with the elite of the racing scene.
Since 2022, a cooperation with the professional racing team AMORE E VITA, which is also steeped in tradition, has been started. The Vatican-sponsored team has existed for decades with a great sporting past (over 7000 victories, including 66 national championship titles, 15 Giro d'Italia stage wins and 12 world championship titles) and was once founded by Pope John Paul II (Karol Józef Wojtyła †2005) in 1989 was launched with the aim of carrying the message "Amore e Vita" out into the wide world. In the current difficult times, this important message has regained great importance and the KIBAG team will proudly represent this this year.
Our sponsors play a big part in this. KIBAG Group, OBOR Tires, De Santi Bikes, Squeezy Sports Nutrition, Tripeak, BNP - Bike'n'PC Clinic, Force Bike Components, Meilan, Dinkel electro AG, Litschi Maler, Axanova and Buchmann Weine have been important partners with us for years.
This continuity is the only way riders can concentrate on what is important – the sport. With great commitment and commitment, the riders try to honor the trust placed in us every day.
In the context of our team spirit, individual success is not the only priority. This is the only way that every rider can contest his highlights over the course of the season and thus make a valuable contribution to the overall success.
#zämestohwitergoh we are back - for good reason.
*The actual team history of AMORE E VITA - KIBAG - OBOR goes back to the year 1950 around founder and cycling visionary Eric Grieshaber (✝2015). He started with the professional teams like Tigra, Möbel Märki-Bonanza up to Willora-Piz Buin-Bonanza at Tour de France, Tour de Suisse, Vuelta Espana or Giro d'Italia. In 2006, Reto Winter took over the team leadership of his longtime teacher and patron Eric Grieshaber with the Rietumu Bank-Riga-Ideal team. Later there was a longer team break until the restart in 2016. This means that AMORE E VITA - KIBAG - OBOR is probably the oldest racing team in the world!
