We have multi-lingual professional guides for riders of all levels and offer tours in select areas of Italy known for their varied cycling landscape and their fine cuisine.
I had the luck to have 5 years experience as a professional rider even though I started my career very late. I participated in the Giro d’Italia for women, the Tour de france femminin and the World Championships in Salzburg. I am most proud of ranking 8th at the 2004 Tour of Flanders World cup.
With 25 years in my pocket as a pro cyclist, I participated in the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia and the Vuelta Espagna. Highlights in my career include winning a gold medal in the TTT at the 1988 Seoul Olympics as well as being a World Champion in 1989. I have also had many years of behind-the-scenes experience in professional cycling, working as both Manager and Director Sportiv for the pro teams Astana and T-Mobile.
During my pro career, I was a professional track rider, came in third in the European Derny Championship, was the Italian champion and won several medals. I was also a professional 6-Days rider and Elite road racer.
