Dear Friends,

From this a bit unusual picture you probably understood that something new is brewing...

To be honest, though there are a lot of speculations about my participation to the Beijing's para-olympics, I did not decide yet. In this moment I cannot decide because I don't have a real measure of my potential in the handbike discipline which is absolutely necessary to understand if an eventual participation would be an athletic gesture or just a marketing one.

Nevertheless, to have this kind of information one needs to start from somewhere and for this reason last Monday, together with Vittorio Podest? and with the support of the friends of the Mapei Center of Varese, I took for the first time "my pulse" in a scientific way in order to decide what specific type of training I eventually need.

The response has been encouraging from one side and discouraging from the other. The doctors of the center defined me as a "powerful engine but badly tuned". This means that there is plenty of work to be done but a lot of improvement margin as well. Who knows, a new adventure can maybe begin...

Finally, I'd like to beg your pardon for not being very present on the "Back and Forth" section of the website, but lately I just had the time to read your messages. I really must find a couple of hours to answer to all your curiosities!

A hug to all of you,
