Bergamo's UCI World Cup 2015 Hopes, Part II

Bergamo's candidacy to host the UCI World Cup 2015 officially began on the evening of November 24th under the slogan of "2015: a Bergamo il Mondo in Bici”. The initiative for the project is being coordinated by the chairman of Gruppo Sportivo Domus, Stefano Civettini, in order to bring in the road World Championships to Bergamo to coincide with the Expo 2015 in Milan .

Present at the meeting were officials of the FCI, the Italian Cycling Federation, and government officials from the city of Bergano and the Lombardy Region. The Undersecretary of the Lombardy Region, Marcello Raimondi, stressed the value of the initiative which would fit well into into the pattern of events planned in 2015 based upon Expo 2015.

Now, work will begin on multiple fronts to make an idea and a dream that were born a few years ago materialize into reality.
