In the Name of the Father

How do you approach the myth? How do you talk about one of the greatest champions of all times without being trivial? More than sixty years after his untimely death, Fausto Coppi is still an indelible presence in the memory of a nation and a sport, cycling, which in his time had begun to fly thanks to the feats of those who will be remembered forever as heroes. And Coppi, of those heroes was the greatest. Romantic hero, with that neorealist actor look. Style hero. Before him, cyclists were only rudimentary athletes. His grace, his ways and his precise ideas in dressing and his presence even outside the competitions helped to create the collective consciousness of a people that began to spread its wings, like a heron, not surprisingly one of the nicknames of the Campionissimo.



JHOOM Go With the Flow: A Bikepacking Adventure in Pakistan

A beautiful and intense bikepacking route, with adrenaline-pumping experiences at times, with a titanic effort in some sections, with latent and palpable poverty, leaving friends behind that will last over time. Pakistan has it all: people of different ethnicities and beliefs, lush mountains and plains, and spicy and delicious food…

This route is divided into 5 blocks, which you can see at Komoot.
