MESSAGE FROM GUIDO
Dearest Paris-Modena Friend,
We are finally back to our favorite program, our beloved Paris-Modena. Since 2014 you have made this adventure possible. Let me thank you from the bottom of my heart for being with us once again. And welcome to our new friends!
Our current life is still not as the one we were used to until 2019 when we had our last Paris-Modena. So, this edition of Paris-Modena wants to be different as well: we will be riding the other way around, from Milan to Reims. Yet, the spirit remains the same.
On this edition, we will be climbing some of the most iconic mountains that have made the history of cycling, Passo Gavia and Passo Stelvio. No pain, no gain, as they say. But Paris-Modena is also a way to push our personal boundaries further and achieve what may seem unachievable. As usual, as a team of friends, helping each other out and making the most of the time spent together.
I very much look forward to live another amazing experience we will never forget.
