I live in Coggiola, a small town situated in the north of Italy. I’m a rider of the FRM Factory Racing Team and I’m the Italian Enduro Champion (2013-2014). I love riding all type of bikes but the enduro bike is my favorite because with her I can do everything! I’m a lucky boy because I travel all over the world with my bike for racing.
I started racing in 2003 with an XC bike and after a few years in that “world” in 2010 I changed and started my career with the enduro bike where I got my best results to become Italian Champion in 2013 and participate in all the EWS around the world.
The podium in the EWS in Italy.
It involves a lot of aspects. You must be really good on your bike in downhill, you must be powerful but also have a good resistance because in a race you can pedal for a lot of hours, also more than one day.
When at the end of a race I know that I rode my best and I pedaled stronger than my possibility, and I had fun during the stages.
I try to have fun during my training and stay focused on my goals.
My family because they follow me during the races and they encourage me to do my best.
Try to win my third consecutive Italian Enduro Championship.
