Lampre-Caffita and Cunego at Reggio Calabria

Damiano Cunego, who began his build-up to the Giro d'Italia with the Settimana Ciclistica Internazionale Coppi-Bartali this week, has indicated his intention to be present for Monday's Giro della Provincia Reggio-Calabria, which was originally scheduled for March 5.

"I think that for a rider such as myself, who has the attention of the public as well as the press, it is important to be always present," said Cunego. "That is why on Easter Monday, I will be at the start of the race that has its finish line along the stretch of coast where 40 days later I will begin the Giro d'Italia."

Directtore sportivo Giuseppe Martinelli echoed Cunego's remarks, emphasising the importance of 'the Kid's' presence at the UCI 1.1 race to the people of Calabria and the race organisers, RCS Sport, who also organise the Giro, among other events.

"The people want to see that his fame and his work as a rider is demonstrated to the full level of his potential. The presence of Cunego in the race is a gift for Calabria and her people on this Easter Monday: a celebration within a celebration," said Martinelli.
