What could I say? In 2018 I got quickly used to shoot the team on the podium but follow a race like this was super exciting! Really happy for what the brasileiro did so far!
This month was so full that I decided to split it in two episodes. The story begins in Val di Sole where I worked for the organization committee following both Downhill and Crosscountry races. The next weekend I moved to Andorra where Gerhard Kerschbaumer and the President finished on the podium. I closed the month with Maxime at the national champs and then with the UEC in Stattegg for the continental championship.
It looks like an easy month with just two appointments, but both of them were part of Internazionali d’Italia Series. I was a bit under pressure cause I had to plan all the details with every o.c.. In the end I’ve been really happy about the result of the circuit: Xc is coming back on the main stage!
We’re in the full of the season. I started May in Isola d’Elba for a Marathon, then straight to Albstadt for the second World Cup and the FSI and Lefty Ocho presentation. To close the month with some more kilometers I headed to Nove Mesto for the Worldcup where CFR keep the lead of Team ranking.
After a month spent in South Africa it’s time to come back and work to my project. Internazionali d’Italia begun in Nals in the second week of April and then we moved to San Marino for the second appointment.
In the meanwhile I had to drive to Swiss for a shooting for Northwave with Jolanda Neff.
Days are so long during this stage race, but this year I had the impression they was faster than usual. Staff were so excited by the results and there were a special energy empowering the whole team!
Need to split March in two pieces: too many adventures and experience to have a 5 pics summary.
One of the winter big appointments is definitely the CX Worlds. When you have a race like this in the North, you can be sure to have the perfect course and a crowded venue. Wout Van Aert confirmed again his title and Gioele Bertolini hit the top 5!
My flight for South Africa was already booked for the day after. In Stellies I met Cannondale Factory Racing team and we had 10 days of good time, shooting new jersey and new Scalpel’s setup.
