Bottoli, continues to compete
Owner Angelo Bottoli declared “One again this year, this project has given us immense satisfaction, and we have managed to complete a cycle whereby teenagers with whom we have worked patiently over the years, have now reached a level of athletic and psychological maturity to be able to become professionals. I am particularly proud of this, not just because we love winning, but because the real aim of our work is to help young talented cyclists to express their potential and to arrive at the big races prepared.
