Fabio NegriFormer Pro
I started road riding at the age of 19, in 2001, and after 7 years in the amateur category I went professional for 3 years. Cycling was already a passion that I explored with my father. Travelling together through many places, going up mythical climbs and experiencing a rare beauty that only your bike can give you! I had many podium finishes (30) and placements (120) in the amateur category. In the National and International competitions (including 2nd place in the Italian Championship and the 2nd place at the Elite Piccolo Giro di Lombardia) I had three victories, including the International Parma – La Spezia.
In 2008 I joined the LPR Brakes Farnese professional team, among the best of the Italian. In 2010 I raced for De La Rosa Stac Plastic. Some of my teammates included: Paolo Savoldelli, Danilo Di Luca and Alessandro Petacchi, with whom I enjoyed racing, and being able to succeed together.
And now I still have that desire to explore, to admire the scenery, and to spend unforgettable moments through cycling. I hope you will decide to come ride on Lake Como as I would be pleased to cycle with you!
I first rode a bike at 12 years old, and since then cycling has become my greatest passion. Although I am not especially interested in racing or competing, I am a huge fan of the racing world and cycling history. I cycle because I enjoy being able to see and experience new places and amazing landscapes, which I can then share with others. I also work as an educator in a community called “Casa Don Guanella,” where we are building an AgriBike, which we believe will be as eye-opening opportunity for the young people. I am a nationally certified MTB and road guide. I look forward to meeting you and showing you the amazing Lake Como that I’m lucky to call home!
Gabriele BosisioFormer Pro
I first hopped on a bike when I was 10 years old. After competing in the amateur categories I was a professional for 9 years.
In the highest category I won six races, one of them being a stage in the 2009 Giro d’Italia where I got to wear the “maglia rosa”. I raced in the world road cycling championships in Varese. Now I’m taking part in this new adventure that allows me to keep cycling and get to know better the streets where I trained for years, and where the legendary champions have raced.
And now I also have a bike shop….that’s truly Italian! I look forward to riding with you!
I began road cycling in earnest at 17 to train for my first triathlon. I then began racing with my university cycling team and working at the best bike shop–two experiences that have helped shaped me as an athlete and as a person. After competing in tri’s for a couple of years, I realized that it was cycling that had captured my heart. As an American who lives near Lake Como, I see why it is a huge cycling hub. The variety of beautiful scenery, the perfect climate, and the welcoming cycling community are a dream come true for avid cyclists. I look forward to showing you around my new home in Northern Italy. I promise you, it’s a destination that you’ll want to return to. I’m also a Certified Personal Trainer and offer fitness training to guide you beyond the roads.
Giorgio BrambillaFormer Pro
My name is Giorgio Brambilla and I was born in Lecco on 1988. I rode a bike for 18 years of which the last 5 as a pro. In 2010 and 2011 I defended the colors of De Rosa with Fabio Negri with some placement in the first 10. In 2012 I switched to Leopard Trek with which I won the Dorpenomloop Ruchpen in Holland and I got several placings among the firsts. In 2014 the Atlas closed and I found the Belgian Team Veranclassic.
Unfortunately it was a season full of problems and was not able to get results at the end of the season so I decided to stop the activities
Now cycling for me has become a relaxing pastime with whom I keep in shape and know new people without having the stress of performance with which I have always had to live during your career.
I will be happy to accompany you on the roads where I trained all these years bringing to the discovery of paths and climb the most beautiful of the lake.
Luca GandolaMTB Guide
My name is Luca Gandola and I’m 19 years old.
My great passion is cycling, I started riding very early, at the age of seven years and in 2002 I attended my first MTB race.
From then until now my passion is always growing, and with it the results.
In 2012 I moved to the Under 23 category, with Team KTM PROTEK DAMA, where I still run. Last year, a friend offered me a great opportunity: to become a tour guide and to take tourists on “my” those roads where I train for years.
I am very happy with this experience. I’m waiting for a nice ride in the company, in one of the most beautiful places in the world!
