Un vero fanatico
A life without cycling? – unimaginable for Filippo Fortin. At the age of seven, his father brought him home his first racing bike, after which Pippo woke him up every Sunday morning to go cycling together. As a professional with Cofidis, he rode all the cobblestone classics, an experience that still accompanies him when it comes to “feeling” cycling. But he was also shaped by his participation in Fixed Gear races – in 2018 he managed to win the overall Red Hook Series, dueling with ex-pushbiker Stefan Schäfer. Pippo is a sprinter, and as a sprinter he is also a bit crazy – for him there is only full gas. In 2022 he was able to ride one day in yellow for the Pushbikers at the Tour of Belgrade Banja Luka.
He is our team leader, the link between riders and staff and contributes to leaving a fingerprint and his own philosophy in the cycling business for the team.
