I am a coach that is specialized in road cycling but I also train people for other sports. My method results from a unique combination of knowledge and my own conclusions about how the training has to be formulated for each and every athlete. My core method is based on heart rate training and heart rate cardiogram chart interpretation which I am an expert at. This is the most accurate and insightful way to get to know an athlete so that I can improve his althetic and overall life performance.
I was born in Milan, Italy in 1979 in an italian family of chefs that came from Tuscany 25 years prior. From Tuscany they brought two things with them: the art of Tuscan cooking and the passion for cycling. So strong was the passion of my father for cycling that when I was born he put a sign on his Tuscan Trattoria saying “the heir of Fausto Coppi was born”! Not too much pressure, eh? On these premises I guess that it would have been unlikely for me to follow a different path. Since the age of 19 I have been loyal to myself and the great love for cycling that I have been nourishing since I was a child.
The road like for most people, has not always been an easy one. I lost my mom to colon cancer when I was just 5 years old. I suffered serious knee injuries after a crash during my neo-professional years in 2009 that left me without walking for a while and far away for cycling for 5 years.
But it was during that difficult time that I gatherd my determination and resilience and continued to learn and grow, to deepen that knowledge and experience that I had already acquired to become the best cycling coach that I could be. I was sports director for Pro Team Amore&Vita for two years.
I coach cyclists of all ages and categories to successfully reach their true potential. I also continue to be an athlete myself, competing mainly in ultra-cycling races, my newfound passion. I did Race Across America in 2016 and hope to be back very soon.

I require my athletes to use a heart rate monitor, my work is based on that!
