Date of birth:
FRM Bike Technology,
I like riding all type of bikes
Sam Hill, Sam Blenkinsop, Justin Leov and many others…
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.

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.
