Home > My Background
Alessandro was born and raised in Rome, Italy. Cycling competitions have occupied an important part of Alessandro’s life having road raced at elite level from age 12 to 18 with the last two years in the AS Grottaferrata Team, one of the best in central Italy at that time. In those years his coach was Antonio Fradusco, a very successful racer in the ’60, and one of the best Italian coaches for juniors in the last 25 years. He has coached among others Italian National Team riders, an Italian Champion and a former Masters World Champion.
Alessandro noticed his talent for teaching/coaching while working as instructor at the Lombardi Motorcycle Racing School and with the most important motorcycle racing clubs in the North East.
At the end of 2007 the bicycle fever was back so he started competing at local level. Even after more than 20 years of inactivity he found himself still being very competitive in cycling. Alessandro won several races right away and moved quickly back up through the categories. He is currently a cat 1 racer.
In 2009 Alessandro became a USAC Coach and started working with Roger Aspholm, a very successful local racer and bicycle coach. In 2011 Alessandro decided to start developing the concept of a school of cycling in NYC by creating ISC.
Today Alessandro is a Cat 1 road racer and a Lev 1 USAC Coach. Besides his own constant desire to become more competitive, his primary goal is to help his clients achieve their goals in cycling.
