Due tipi da tenere d’occhio…

Nel press kit che abbiamo ricevuto dall’ufficio stampa di Greenville troviamo anche un’interessante scheda con gli ateli principali. Il titolo recita: “Riders to watch“.

In questo elenco troviamo anche due italiani. Si tratta di Fabrizio Macchi e Alex Zanardi. A proposito di Fabrizio si legge: “Fabrizio Macchi is a veteran para-cyclist who has competed on both the track and the road for many years after he lost a leg to cancer as a teenager. Macchi is a former World Champion. The event in Greenville is his return to international competition”.

Invece a proposito del campione olimpico: “In 2001, Alex Zanardi’s horrific crash in a Formula 1 race was seen around the world. After the accident – which left Zanardi as a double amputee – Zanardi rebuilt his career as a great athlete, this time as a handcyclist. The charismatic Italian focused his efforts on the 2012 London Paralympic Games, and came away with two gold medals (Individual Time Trial and Road Race), and a silver in the handcycle relay. Although Zanardi is the heavy favorite, keep your eye on American Dane Pilon, who – although he didn’t make the London team – narrowly missed a medal at the 2011 World Championships. Pilon is also a 3-time winner of the U.S. Handcycling Criterium Championships in Greenville”.

    In realtà nel Team Relay abbiamo vinto la medaglia d’argento, non il bronzo…
