Cyclo-Cross World Cup round scheduled in Treviso on November 4th will draw attention to environment respect, whereas the "Le Bandie Lake" location was created after a huge recovery started 30 years ago. The strategy of the organizing staff leaded by Remo Mosole seems really interesting and several important steps on this matter will be announced in the event's press conference to be held in Treviso on October 31.

Since "Le Bandie Centre" proposes itself at the international audience as an extraordinary events' location, a new project is starting up to focus the general attention on how important to protect the environment is: the idea to deliver a little gift to the spectators getting the competition course by car, but with not less than four passengers on board.

Based on the first, temporary list of the enrolled riders, more than 200 athletes will challenge take part in the four categories: for all of them, the World Cup competition will represent an important test towards 2008 Cyclo-Cross World Championships (January 26-27) to be held on the same Treviso's course.

Destefanis Passes

Giovanni Destefanis passed away at the age of 91. The rider from Torino, pro from 1939 to 1947, served part of his career as a domestique to both Fausto Coppi at Bianchi and Fiorenzo Magni at Viscontea. Destefanis' funeral was held today in Torino.
