Who taught you how to ride a bike & how old were you?
My dad taught me how to ride a bike, but
What was your first ‘proper’ road bike & what colour was it?
What’s the most important piece of kit/advice that has helped boost your performance?
I can see an improvement in my performances when I start to be supported by the right people, who help me either to improve my performance or either to keep my balance. So my advice is: don’t think you can do all by yourself… people around you can help you a lot.
What’s your favourite routes/places to ride?
I love Tuscany, around Lucca and I love riding my bike there.
What tips do you have to keep the love of cycling going amidst all the training?
It’s hard! Maybe the most important was: be always honest with yourself happy with what you have done and with what you want to do.
What experiences are still to do on your cycling ‘bucket list’?
I have a lot of things to do, yet! My cycling bucket list is updating every day 😉 but I am a concrete person, my list is made of reachable goals…for example one of my wishes was to go to Spain for some training…and it will happen next month!
