Riccardo Zacchi is a 25 year-old cyclist who competes for Italian and international master races. He mainly competes in uphill races and medium- or long-distance races (medio fondo/gran fondo), and he prefers racing on mountain paths characterized by long uphill climbs.
This year he focused on stage races “Schwalbe Tour Transalp” (886,12 km for 19152 m of altitude), and he has carefully trained for the event which was really so satisfactory that he wants to participate again.
Now he is focusing on the preparation of the final season, mainly aiming at participating in the Oetztaler Radmarathon, one of the most important European marathons. It starts from Solden, Austria. The marathon course is 238 km for 5500 m of altitude.
