The website for the 2013 UCI World Championships-Toscana (Tuscany), Italy, has been updated today with a promo video and a video with the course information. The Regione Toscana is a partner in the project with these Tuscan cities playing important roles in the championships: Firenze, Lucca (where Mario Cipollini hails from), Pistoia, Montecatini Terme, and Fiesole. The dates are September 22-29, 2013.
The website is www.toscana2013.it (not all sections are finished).
Also noted on the website with interest was this piece about Alfredo Martini:
Tomorrow, at the 2012 World Championships, the Elite Women's Road Race (129 km) will be held. That will be followed on Sunday with the Elite Men's Road Race (267 km). The men's Squadra Azzurra will go on the offensive in Sunday’s world championships road race in Valkenburg. Italian coach Paolo Bettini promised that his riders will break open the race. Designated to go for gold is Vincenzo Nibali. "You won’t see the team playing catenaccio (defense). We don’t have a Gilbert or a Valverde, so we can't afford to wait.”
Stories for the Italian Cycling Journal about rides, granfondos, touring, having a good time cycling in Italy, Italian cycling history, racing, etc. are always welcome.
