ur sport project was born in 2009 when Angelo Citracca, team manager of the team with the headquarters on the top of San Baronto hill, decided to bring one of the most winning Under 23 team in the category Professional. Eight long years full of joy and pain but with many emotions, same feelings that brought back in the peloton two historical italian brands, Wilier Triestina and Selle Italia, that became leaders in the world.
111 years of history for Wilier Triestina while Selle Italia will celebrate in 2017 the 120th birthday, two moments to don’t forget and to bring in the 100th edition of the Giro d’Italia that the team will join in may for the 8th in these last 9 years to show the importance of a project that every year works with the young talents of italian and international cycling.
The results are getting better year after year and that’s how the team managed to win for two times in the last three years the Italian Cup achieving most victories than any other italian team in the last 36 months.
In 2016 the team won in 7 countries and in 3 continents with 5 different riders. Between all the victories there were as well 2 National Championships and a bronze medal at the World Championships of Doha to add at the participation of Liam Bertazzo at the Olympic Games of Rio De Janeiro. As a Professional team a great result was the wildcard for 4 of the 5 Monuments Classics of the World Tour calendar.
In 2017 we will face new challenges with a roster that will be leaded by two symbolic men of the italian cycling, Filippo Pozzato and Jakub Mareczko.
“Pippo” has an unbelievable palmares in Italy with 27 wins in career including a Milan – Sanremo, two stages at the Tour de France, one stage at the Giro d’Italia, the general classification of a Tirreno – Adriatico and one edition of the National Championships. “Kuba” has won 25 races all around the world in two seasons, impressive results that convinced the coach of the Under 23 Selection Marino Amadori to give him the leadership at the World Championships of Doha where Mareczko was able to end in the podium achieving the only male medal for Italy.
At Doha there was also Filippo Pozzato, a prize for a season where he was close to come back to his normal form with good reslts like the bronze at the National Championsihps or the 8th place at Milan – Sanremo where he as the best of the italian riders. At the Classicissima Pozzato showed once more to be an icon of glamour in the world of cycling as he had great attention by the belgian tv Sporza that dedicated to him a two days interview where Pippo was followed by the cameras during the training, the massage sessions and just before and after the race. In Belgium, country of cycling, Pozzato is the second most popular and supported cyclist after Tom Boonen and his popularity is huge also during the Giro d’Italia where journalists and fans are always near him because of his open character.
We will need them and all the team to live another great season to bring Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia in the universe of the best teams in the world
