Bergamo's UCI World Cup 2015 Hopes

Bergamo's candidacy to host the UCI World Cup 2015 is beginning to take form. Bergamo hosted this year's finish of Stage 8 of the Giro d'Italia.

What has so far been an idea that has circulated for several months in the cycling community will evolve with a meeting this Tuesday, November 24, to formalize the creation of an organizing committee. The President of the Gruppo Sportivo Domus, Stefano Civettini, and Vice President of the FCI, FCI Gianni Sommariva, will lay the foundation for the ambitious project. If the candidacy comes to fruition it would give the Bergamo region area a unique opportunity in terms of sports, tourism and urban development in a year in which Milan has been selected to host EXPO 2015.
