DAVIDE CASSANI: CON I GIOVANI SI LAVORA COSI’

Davide Cassani è da tempo una figura di riferimento importante per il mondo del ciclismo. Da atleta lo chiamavano il CT in corsa. Poi, Commis­sa­rio Tecnico lo è diventato per davvero e oggi, a capo del progetto federale, fa di tutto per valorizzare e tutelare i giovani italiani che domani passeranno al professionismo. Davide è un convinto sostenitore della partecipazione in prove a tappe, utili per la crescita e per la selezione naturale degli atleti. Conoscere il suo pensiero è importante per comprendere a pieno i disegni fe­de­rali impostati per la valorizzazione dei giovani. Lei sostiene l’importanza della gare a tap­pe per Under, eppure Nibali da ragazzo non ha vinto […]

Davide Cassani: how to train young athletes

Davide Cassani: how to train young athletes

Davide Cassani is a long-time central figure in cycling. When he was still racing they were calling him “Racing coach”. Later he really became the Team Italy coach and today, head of the federal project, he works on helping and protecting the young athletes while growing up. Davide is a strong supporter of stage races, useful to improve their strengths and to select the best ones. “You stand for the importance of stage races for Under, but Nibali never won a Giro with his youth team, which was not even a first level one. How do you explain this? Phenomenons are a different topic. Anyway when Nibali was a junior he won […]

HOLIDAYS ARE GONE. HOW LONG TO BE BACK IN SHAPE?

HOLIDAYS ARE GONE. HOW LONG TO BE BACK IN SHAPE?

The end of autumn is here and for the cycling pros it’s time to plan the next season. Let’s start, with a mix of enthusiasm and programs. The target is to improve the fitness in the right way, without rushing. The first question could be: how long does it take to be back in shape? We can find an answer with Davide Martinelli, who started his workouts a few days ago. We should distinguish between the ones directly aiming at the fitness peak, and the ones who are planning for a target later in the season. I think that to be fast in Australia you need to do the first seasonal races […]

VACANZE TERMINATE. QUANTO CI VUOLE A TORNARE IN FORMA?

VACANZE TERMINATE. QUANTO CI VUOLE A TORNARE IN FORMA?

Siamo a fine autunno e per i professionisti del pedale è tempo di tornare a pensare alla prossima stagione agonistica. Si riparte, tra entusiasmo e programmazione. L’obiettivo è quello di entrare in forma nel modo corretto, senza bruciare i tempi. La prima cosa che ci si potrebbe chiedere è Quanto tempo ci vuole per tornare in forma? Per dare una risposta a questa domanda ci viene incontro Davide Martinelli, che proprio da pochissimi giorni ha ripreso ad allenarsi. Bisogna fare una distinzione tra chi va subito in cerca del picco di forma e quelli che hanno degli obiettivi più avanti nella stagione. Credo che per andare forte in Australia, alle […]

A DREAM DAY

A DREAM DAY

I am Michela, a triathlete for passion … but with cycling in my blood. I had the opportunity to take part to a riding day with a pro World Tour racer to test the new SportPlusHealth platform.

The answer was just one: sure yes!!! But let’s hope that he will wait for me!! How to say no to a ride with a pro cyclist in the wonderful scenery of Livigno, […]
