Michele Mondini and Luca Carton (CM Outdoor Events) draw a balance of the 2017 edition, already looking forward to next year
The 2017 edition of Internazionali d’Italia Series has recently come to a close, but for the circuit organizer it’s already time for balances and new projects. “We believe to have conducted a good edition of Internazionali d’Italia – CM Outdoor Events’ Michele Mondini said – in which more and more top riders have shown confidence in our proposal, coming to Italy to find high-level events in technical, organizational and logistical terms. We have proposed five spectacular and entertaining events, always attended by a big number of fans. The credit has to be shared with the races’ organizers, who are key to the success of a circuit like ours, the circuit’s sponsors, and the Italian Cycling Federation, that showed confidence in this project last year and is sharing our commitment in developing it in a coherent and ambitious way.”
Internazionali d’Italia Series might go on vacation now, but ideas and projects for next year are already in place: “We have already had a meeting with the FCI and the organizers to exchange ideas – told Luca Carton of CM Outdoor Events. “We would be available and happy to keep on working with the same partners, but some organizers are evaluating different projects, and the situation with Milan hasn’t had any positive evolution so far. On the other hand, we are collecting quite some interest from new organizers who would like to join Internazionali d’Italia, and that’s a very good sing. In addition, we haven’t had any races in Central and Southern Italy in this edition, and we would love to have at least one in 2018. Hopefully some interesting bids to make this happen will come soon.”
“It seems like the World Cup will start in late May once again in 2018,” Mondini explained, “and there is room to establish high-level events with first-tier protagonists. The sponsors who believe in our sport invest in teams for a whole season, from March to October: if we will manage to further raise the bar in organization and visibility, a bright future could be in store for Internazionali d’Italia Series.”
