The Giro Centenario is the ultimate challenge for Italian athletes to get fit and look their best. This competition takes place during the month of May. You may think that there is no relevance to the summer in this year’s Giro but that is not so. The men’s section features some of the finest young sprinters in the world today, some of them just starting to make their mark in the sport, like Italy’s national hero amp; Lotto champion Julian Farri. However, it also includes some strong older players who have had some success already in this race but who are looking for bigger challenges.
Giuseppe Vinetola is a 31-year-old who has won the silver medal at the Tour de France four times. Last year he became the first rider to win the Giro in both the sprints and the Tour de France. He has been doing this since he was a teenager in the Milan velodrome. Also, a former cyclist, Vinetola knows that winning will come only if he does the right training. So, what is the secret to his success?
“I always start my day by riding on the kickstart. I feel good when I do this because it helps me prepare mentally before the race. It is a good way to control myself and not go too fast in the first climbs. If I am going uphill, I prefer to go with a shorter distance ollie before doing a big surge for the sprint. That gives me more time to recover and to be relaxed for the second part of the training, the stage race. It is important to have a good preparation for the Giro.”
Lotto champion Julian Farri is the same as Vinetola in the sense that both of them have achieved great results already and have a lot of experience in this discipline. Both of them are motivated to win and to reach their maximum potential, just like the rest of the Italian riders. They both have a similar training program and similar racing strategies: they train very hard and wear the maximum possible amount of protection.
During the Giro test, Julian Farri made some changes to his training program in order to make it more effective. He did not anymore work on the ramps, preferring instead to work on the flat and hard areas of the course. He also added a new technique: the sprint. In the past, he had sprinted on the ramps but did not like the results, so he decided to train on the flats for this season, hoping to find better results.
After making some changes to his program, Julian still did not achieve the results he wanted. He had also lost some weight, which contributed to the poor performance. But when he did the Sparkasse Girokto men’s road bike and pro kit, he noticed a big change: the bike was much easier to handle, handling a lot easier than before. The men’s road bike had some of the same components as the women’s, but they were a bit bigger. This allowed him to accelerate better and ride better.After trying the Sparkasse Girokto men’s road bike and pro kit for some time, Julian decided that he would buy a pair for himself. He found the fit perfect, so he decided to buy one for his friend as well, who also tried the bike. Both of them were impressed with the quality and performance of the bike. And after riding both of their bikes, they decided that they would buy a whole set for themselves. They knew that they would really like to test the bike during the Giro test, but they were not sure what to put in the basket with the men’s road bike.
So, they decided to put two cups – one for the men’s road bike and one for the women’s road bike. They had to make sure that the women’s road bike had a bottle holder on the handle bars and that it also had deep saddlebags – just like the men’s road bike. And then they decided that they wanted something a bit more feminine for the men’s road bike. So, for the men’s road bike they decided to buy a pink frame, and for the women’s road bike they decided to buy a red frame. Now they have two complete sets, and they love them both!
