Biography

The cyclist from Parabiago, a town near Milan, comes to the Foundation from the Canturino Cycling Club 1902 and is aware that movement can be surprising. “I know that it’s not normal and it’s not easy either. Firstly because I am facing my first year in the category and because you are arriving at a new category in which you will be competing against older boys with more experience. It is a great difficulty, even more so because it is in another country, but I am convinced that I will learn a lot from this experience. I was very interested in getting to know another reality of this sport and this opportunity allows it. Montoli, one of the riders of the 2020 youth season in Italy thanks in large part to his national title, may have been a little more protagonist because of the history that accompanies him. Three years ago, when he was 15, he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. “It was the most difficult time of my life. One day you’re with your friends, life is wonderful, and the next day you don’t know what’s going to happen. You have to have surgery, you are young and confused. The operation, the treatment… With determination and courage I overcame that moment. It wasn’t easy, but I made it. And I want that message to reach everyone. Three years ago I couldn’t even do 20 kilometres on my bike. I could never have imagined that I would win the Nationals just three years later”. The Lombard rider defines himself as “a speedy passer-by” who does well on not very long climbs. “I like climbing, more than the big volatas. Volatas give me more respect. A smaller sprint is a context in which I can perform better”.
