my story

  I believe that by working with the heart, discipline and passion, day after day, you are able to achieve great results and overcome major climbs, not just cycling, but also in life.

My name is Manuele, I’m 29 years old and since childhood I always wanted to be a cyclist.

I approached the world of cycling as a child when Dad used to take me to the races on Sunday . I immediately loved cycling and, like all fans, I was a great supporters of idols like Pantani and Cipollini.

Age of ten I showed up alone, without the permission of my parents, in front of the Loria cyclist team sports directors (in the province of Treviso) asking to be part of their team. So began my adventure in the world of cycling, where I immediately got results in the junior categories …
