Samuele Manfredi: "Now I dream of the Trofeo Città di Loano!"
There will be a special welcome for the loanese who has already won the first two races of the 2018 season

The junior season has kicked off for just two weeks but the world of youth cycling already has a great protagonist: it is the loanese, Samuele  Manfredi who has already scored in the first two outings of 2018. The guy in force at Work Service Romagnano, has beaten the competition not  only in Italy, going to take a solo escape the GF Cassani Youth who ran in Solarolo (Ra) but also the international one winning last Sunday the  Gand-Wevelgem reserved for juniors and went on stage on the roads of Northern Europe that a few hours later crowned Peter Sagan for the third  time. Caster's armor, black curls and a smile always on his lips: this is Samuele Manfredi who now looks at the Trofeo Città di Loano that will  run on his roads next April 15th. The event enjoys the contribution and sponsorship of tourism, culture and sport of the Municipality of Loano.
"I already had the pleasure of running it last year with an excellent result, a fourth place behind three great riders starring in a stellar  2017. It's a tactically very complicated race, and in the group you feel a lot of tension being the first international race for almost  everyone, but running with a lot of concentration from the first to the last minute you can try to conquer it "Manfredi confided that last year  he had regulated the sprint of the most immediate pursuers of the trio composed by the French Mountauban and Lefaure and by Rastelli at the end  of 2017 he graduated vice world champion.
And the Velo Club Loano - Cicli Anselmo, together with the many fans of two wheels and the municipal administration of Loano is preparing a  special welcome for its "enfant du pays", as confirmed by the mayor Luigi Pignocca: "We always follow the companies Samuele and we cheer for  him: having the opportunity to see him at work on our roads is an honor for us.I am sure that Sunday, April 15th, the fans of Loano (and not  only) will be present in mass both uphill and on goal to incite Samuele and all the other guys who will come from all over Europe for what is  now a classic and unmissable appointment of our calendar ".
"The Trofeo Città di Loano - adds the councilor for tourism, culture and sport Remo Zaccaria - is now part of the sporting history of our city.  For our administration it is always a pleasure to support and sponsor this event, which is a very important showcase for hundreds of young  athletes and for all our territory. A real 'very classic' that once again confirms the now proverbial union between Loano and the world of  sport, especially the one that sees the youngest protagonists ".
Samuele Manfredi is a boy who leaves nothing to chance and feels he has a decisive season for his career on two wheels: "This year is very  important for my career. It is important to be known by young people to have hopes of reaching the world of cycling that counts, and now I have  this opportunity that I'm trying to make the best of it.The preparation of this winter was aimed at having an excellent condition in this very  important start of the season where I have the opportunity to participate at many international competitions in Italy and abroad For the rest of  the season there is still a lot to define, but I have goals both on the road and in the time trial and on the track ".
And after the one-two placed in the first two weeks of races, the dream is to bring a loanese on the highest step of the podium in the classic  of the Riviera delle Palme: "Being able to race on the streets gives a beautiful feeling, all the challenges with friends made in training for a  game become a real race, a dream come true.I have followed her since I was a child when I was impressed to see those cyclists darting a bit  mad.We know I am now playing the part of the cyclist a bit crazy fills me with joy and pride ", continued Manfredi. "Almost every day I struggle  and suffer on the magnificent roads that you travel with the Trofeo Città di Loano and I know the path very well, but I will not fail to review  the last important descent and the final straight, where I will stop for an ice cream stop ".
Samuele Manfredi, therefore, looks with confidence, ambition and serenity at the home appointment, aware that the opponents will not fail to try  to put him in trouble. "The Loano Trophy does not win in a particular passage of the race, you win by running away from danger and wasting as  little as possible. Certainly the ascent and descent are decisive, but the race does not end there. I am convinced that anyone who wants to win  must first become the protagonist of a brilliant move to make the difference, but it is not a skill you can train on and this makes the winner  of the Loano Trophy a real runner! "
