Mario Cipollini

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the first instance ruling (Court of Lucca) established for the former cyclist a compensation of 80 thousand euros to Mrs. Landucci and of 5 thousand euros to Giusti, her current partner.

Former cycling world champion Mario Cipollini was accused of ill-treatment, injuries and threats to ex-wife Sabrina Landucci and her current partner Silvio Giusti. The story dates back to last June 22 where the prosecutor Letizia Cai had requested a 2 and a half year prison for the former cyclist (2 for injuries to his ex-wife plus 6 months for injuries to Giusti). The story began on January 9, 2017, with the complaint of Landucci. The indictment already went into the details of the accusations: Cipollini allegedly committed "a series of acts damaging the physical and mental integrity of his ex-wife with punches, slaps, kicks, with injuries and death threats".

“I am pleased with this sentence and this victory, even if we say that it is not a victory, but a difficult life. It was a very difficult path, the defense part really hurt me very, very badly. I felt offended in the image of an inadequate mother. It's the end of a nightmare ”said Sabrina Landucci after the sentence to 'Italian Stories' on Rai1. “After seven long years, a nightmare has ended - continues the ex-wife -. They have been difficult years, I have been quite reserved in my things. But at some point I had to say enough and scream what I had inside, because it was difficult and unsustainable. It's a life that I fight for my daughters, I do everything for them, so the image of inadequate mother I was painted with really hurt me. For me it was a complicated life, with a figure of a character about whom I have nothing to say on the sporting side, but unfortunately he had strong difficulties in our relationship that have definitely damaged me. I think this sentence is right beyond that it hurts everyone, because it really hurts".

Finally, Landucci concludes: "I thought I could handle a situation that at some point after years of separation I was no longer able to handle. I was afraid, and at that moment I said enough and a little unconsciously I took this step. I did not know what I was going through, in such a long process, I did not imagine it. Fortunately it is the first time and I hope also the last, I do not wish it to anyone, but I had to do it. I couldn't hold it all inside anymore, something much bigger than me. It ended well, even if there are no winners here. I have two daughters, so I think they are the injured party. It was right to think of them: a sign that at some point a woman must also give in respect for other women and especially for her children. We cannot submit, but it is difficult to report. These are things so private and intimate that it is difficult to put at everyone's mercy".

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
