Hard work pays off. He knows something about her Niccolo Borati Without a doubt, the under-23 runner of the moment.
Niccolo where does all this power come from?
“From hard, intense work and constant dedication to what I do every day, cycling – explains Friulian Porate -. You also put in greater conviction and a good dose of luck and the rest comes by itself. The words I reap the fruits I have sown.”

Objectives and programs Where do they come from?
“From the CTF Lab, our training center for the Friuli Cycling Team. With coach Andrea Vosaz we are always looking for the optimal condition and on more than one occasion we have also tested it in team time trials. We have raised the bar and the numbers they see are yes. You have to train a lot to get the best benefits. “

So far the last nine victories, yesterday in Polignano a Mare in Giro di Puglia (Targa Crocifisso, editor) in the jersey of the Italian national team. On Wednesday the 14th of the month you will travel to Australia to participate in the World Cup What ambitions?

“I am happy with the way this season is going and I hope to finish it with another big satisfaction. World Championship? I aim to do a good job, there is no point in hiding it. The condition is excellent and the morale is just right. In Puglia there were all the riders, my other teammates in the national team Who were preparing for the world championship and I found myself up front with Bussato and Di Brito who are really strong. Day one in Selva di Fasano where Bussato was second, Di Brito third and me ninth. We are calm and no pressure, so we did a good job in anticipation of the world championship away.”

So far Borati has done nothing wrong: He won the sprint, time trial and uphill as a perfect complete racer.
