Two new entries in the sports management of the future Bardiani-CSF-Faizanè. In the 2020 season sports directors Mario Manzoni and Alessandro Donati will be part of the technical staff of the #GreenTeam, with Roberto Reverberi, DS and team manager, and Mirko Rossato.
Manzoni debuted as sports director in 2005 on with team Androni Giocattoli, after a long career as pro-rider from 1991 to 2004. Since 2015 he has been one the heading director of team Nippo-Fantini-Faizanè.
“I’m ready to face this new challenge with great enthusiasm by providing my professionalism to give added value to a group that has already conquered great goals,” says Manzoni. “There will be time to organise the work for the new season in the coming months. The aim of the team is to relaunch and, together with my colleagues, we will work to help the new roster to consolidate and become a team. There are many young riders to whom I hope to transmit, first of all, my passion for cycling”.
The 2020 season for Donati will be his sixth year as sports director, after the three with GM Europa Ovini and the two with Nippo-Fantini-Faizanè. Before, he spent nine years in saddle as pro-rider.
“I’m going to be part of a prestigious team, a real institution of our cycling” says Donati. “From the very first chats, I felt a great sense of belonging and the desire to take great satisfaction. For my growth as a sports director, it’s a great opportunity. I thank Bruno and Roberto Reverberi for this and I count on repaying their trust with the maximum commitment. We have a busy season ahead and my contribution to the cause will never be lacking”.
Bardiani-CSF would like also to thank team director Stefano Zanatta and coach Claudio Cucinotta, whose future will no longer be with the team, for the work they have done over the years, wishing them a profitable continuation of their career.
