The course was imparted by Daniele Bennati, Roberto Amadio and Paolo Sangalli from the FCI, Kevin Dessimoz (International Testing Agency) , Wallis Delattre (UCI), Cristian Salvato and Alessandra Cappellotto from the ACCPI, Stefano Piccolo from pro cycling LEGA, the doctors Gianluca Masi and Andrea Crociani, the president of the italian commisaires Gianluca Crocetti, Josè Luiz Dantas and Fabrizio Forzini from the Federal Technique School, the Cofidis team manager Roberto Damiani and the journalist Andrea De Luca, addressed all the areas that these young riders must know when stepping up to the World Tour or Professional teams, wich gives an idea of the relevance of cycling in Italy (not too many federations do something similar).

The conferences were attended online by Erica Magnaldi, Barbara Malcotti, Katia Ragusa, Rachele Barbieri and Vittoria Guazzini too, so that’s why there are only two girls in the picture.
