In winter, muddy fields and often snowy we propose with the specialist,
MARCO BIANCO, past 8 italian championship, 6 times in the podium.
For him around 40 races, many of which are in Belgium/Switzerland/Netherland
and renew the goal of italian podium, or rather let us say the tricolor jersey
and do figure well as tricolor jersey in the World Tour and World Cup.
He has already won the International Faè , the National Varallo Sesia, stage
of the Tour of Italy and a C2 in Netherland, the stage of the Tour of Italy
in Paternò. With 4-5 young athletes, 2 women and 3-4 master, we will follow

also organize competitions and events. In this area we burn a lot of energy,
both economic and human. In 2013 we propose 4 classics and maybe
a new entry in which we are thingking. In Spring, 10th of March

Promotion and school project
Continues our commitment at the level of our area. We have entered the school
curriculum in time eight years ago with fatigue; it is now the time for the school
to ask our initiatives aimed at making known the bike and to promote its use.
Lessons from 3-10, will be integrated with standards of road safety and the
environment, we will refine the technical capacity and coordinative always
favoring the playfull aspect. Joined in time , are the schools at Villa Lagarina,
Ala, Brentonico, Degasperi Rovereto, Orsi Rovereto.
Our teachers of Mountainbike attended course level 2 that the FCI has led us,
first in Italy at Rovereto and brilliantly passed the theoretical and practical
examinations, enriching their professional background.

The Sports Council of the Autonomous Province of Trento, in a series of initiatives
for the promotion of sports in the youth, funded the project “TrentinoLAB
whose implementation was entrusted to CeRiSM (Interuniversity Research
Center in Bioengineering and Sports Science
) led by Prof. Federico Schena
based in Rovereto. The project provides for the implementation of assesment
tests at the laboratory of the Center, which are equipped with advance equipment
and high scientific level, in favor of Athletes identified by the provincial sports
federations of swimming, athletics, skiing and best Athletes of L’Arcobaleno
Carraro Team for off-road cycling. The staff, next to Dr. Schena (Medical
Association), Prof. Impellizzeri, the nutritionist Dra. Suder and coach Alfredo
Brighenti. The project will continue for the next three years.

What do i expect from Executives, Athletes, Sponsors, Employees, Local
Authorities, Media, Supporters and Sympathiser? Surely that they continue
to reward our efforts and our commitments, “riding” on our side of the ideal path
that we set out to accomplish in absolute seriousness and professionalism,
they can still count on the gold mine represented by the voluntary and therefore
can share the greatest satisfactions that we collected for 20 years, bringing up
the name of Rovereto and Trentino in the world.
We are and we knew it, our youth grow up healthy in body and mind;
and the results are not lacking, the economic resources are increasing difficult
to find, but just like good ants we proceed. Our motto is always present
we were good, we will do better”; make it your own. In summary we think
we have presented you the program for 2013, thanks again for what you have
given us and we reserved, we remain at your disposal for any clarification
and we send our warmest greetings.
