Place of Birth: Isola della Scala

m. 1,77

kg. 72

Speciality Track Omnium, Road race


Be it on track or on road, what’s important for him is going faster than the others. After having practiced tennis, skating and football, at the age of eight he started cycling with a friend and has never stopped since. All he needs is a bike, with which to win a leg of the Tour of Italy or, on the track, to become a many times European champion in the open race. At 27, the athlete from Isola della Scala comes to Rio to improve his sixth place earned at London 2012. In Brazil, he will also find his girlfriend Elena Cecchini: another athlete who knows something about speed. In fact, the Italian cyclist will compete in the team race. Together they share hard work, joy, training and the playful affection of Attila, a French Bouledogue puppy who greets them enthusiastically when they come home.
