Pedal champions race through the centre of Lugano.
"Ride' can be read in English, in the sense of 'ride'. But the organisers of the ride also read it in Italian. They are 'laughing' at it, in fact, because the field of participants in the 1st Edition of the Axion Lugano Summer Ride is mind-boggling. Ticino has long since become a privileged place for many cyclists who have chosen to live there. One of the most prestigious, has accepted the invitation of the Velo Club Lugano and will be at the start on Sunday 31 July in Piazza Rezzonico. Vincenzo Nibali, the Shark of the Strait, the man capable of taming Grand Tours and Monumental Classics, will have to contend with his young compatriot Filippo Ganna, Olympic team pursuit champion and double time trial world champion, who has been a citizen of Ascona for months. And with the Slovenian Primož Rogli?, the former ski jumper who dominated the last three editions of the Vuelta of Spain and many other important races. The Swiss Gino Mäder, supported by his fan's club that has sprung up in Ticino, will try with the other participants to spoil their party. And party it will be, in any case, with the Amateur races, the U11, U13, and U15 categories, with music, food, stalls and conviviality.
