Cycling Sport Promotion will organise three international events again in 2016, as established by the International Cycling Union (UCI) with the publication of their calendar of athletic events for the upcoming season.
“The UCI has acknowledged the value of the events organised by Cycling Sport Promotion – commented president, Mario Minervino – in 2016 we will once again regale the province of Varese with three top level races: the Trofeo Binda for women, the Trofeo Da Moreno for junior women and the Trofeo Almar – Nation’s Cup for riders under 23. However, there are some changes regarding the dates for next year. The two women’s races will be held a week earlier, on Sunday 20 March, the day after the Milano-San Remo. We believe in women’s cycling and we agreed to bring our traditional date forward to allow the Gent Wevelgem women’s race to enjoy maximum media coverage as it will take place on the same day as the men’s race. We were also able to move the U23 Nation’s Cup forward so as to avoid a clash with the Tour de France”.
From tomorrow, with the new calendar on hand, Cycling Sport Promotion, Mario Minervino and his outstanding team will start working to set up this new bouquet of events on two wheels. (Photo F. Ossola)
