in the field the future levers of the national team. I want to thank the Coni, the Molise Region,

president Mario De Lena has done a commendable job. What we will see in this four-
day race is thanks to him “.

event strongly desired by our region. My presidency wants to bring positive examples to
young people by giving the opportunity to start practicing this sport to strengthen its link with
young people. This is why we are involving schools and countries that do not yet have teams “.
The president of Coni Campobasso Antonio Rosari welcomed “the renewal in
Federation because valid people have been chosen. Now the movement must resume a race

friends and families. For this I want to thank the hoteliers because we managed to get
competitive prices. Special thanks also go to the head of the Industrial Institute. It is an
event that has seen the collaboration of all those who have made themselves available “.
