Paris 2024: The Olympic Test is almost here, here are the Azzurri called up

Olympics dress rehearsals Sunday 24 September for the world of Cross Country. The Italian national team will take part in the pre-Olympic test event.


Here are the players called up by coach Mirko Celestino:
AVONDETTO SIMONE – WILIER‑PIRELLI FACTORY TEAM XCO
BRAIDOT DANIELE – CS CARABINIERI OLYMPIA VITTORIA
BRAIDOT LUCA – SANTA CRUZ ROCKSHOX PRO TEAM
COLLEDANI NADIR – SANTA CRUZ ROCKSHOX PRO TEAM
SPECIA GIADA – WILIER‑PIRELLI FACTORY TEAM XCO
TEOCCHI CHIARA – KTM ‑ PROTEK ‑ ELETTROSYSTEM
ZANOTTI JURI – TEAM BMC

The test will be held on the artificial hill of Elancourt, near Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. This race will most likely also see the talented Mathieu Van der Poel at the start.

Normally the MTB world championships would have been my last race of the season. Then I changed my mind but it is logical that I am no longer in top shape, both physically and mentally. I really want to participate in the Olympic MTB test. Just to feel comfortable with MTB again and because I really want to try the Olympic Games circuit. That's why I kept running on the street. I hope I can improve a little. But I already know I won't be in my best shape – Mathieu Van der Poel

We remind you that Mathieu van der Poel, thanks to the result of his compatriot in the U23 event, the presence of a place for the race seems certain XCO in Paris 2024.
