The Binda Trophy week begins and Cittiglio, Gavirate and the whole Valcuvia region are finalising the preparations for the double event on Sunday; the Alfredo Binda Trophy for elite women and the Da Moreno Trophy for junior women; two events that can hold their own with any other race in the world: “We are putting the finishing touches on all aspects of the race – explained Mario Minervino, leader of Cycling Sport Promotion which organises the two races – we have already installed a large part of the communication that distinguishes the events: the roundabouts, the billboard at the Colacem factory, we are about to put up the flags and the posters that announce Sunday’s races all over the region. We will soon start to set up the stage and the structures for the start and finish lines. Then it will be the turn of the arches and all the rest. The weather should be good all week and this will make our work easier; after the recent snows, we can breathe a sigh of relief. Now we are just waiting for the athletes, their staff and the fans, on Sunday, for whom we have prepared a full programme of entertainment”. Those who arrive in Cittiglio on Friday will already find fun; lots of music, entertainment and good food right up until Sunday afternoon. Don’t miss out! (Photo F.Ossola)
