Canepa twins are two new riders for GM Europa Ovini 2017

There are two young attractive riders for gm Europa Ovini’s 2017 season: Francesco and Leonardo Canepa will become part of the #blackandgreen team in the next season. The two riders, both 19 years old, come from the GB Junior Pedale Castanese, the team where they obtained a lot of good placings in the most difficult races.

Canepa twins are born in Boissano (Sv) and they train on the roads of Trofeo Laigueglia. Francesco was junior regional champion in 2015, in 2015 he got a third place at Pinerolo-Sestriere, and one third placing in the Biella Junior race. Leonardo has instead got a great second place in Capriolo (Bs) and third in Barzago.

“Being part of GM Europa Ovini is a great opportunity – says Francesco Canepa – because there is the possibility to face both with under 23 riders and with the professionals. My brother and I thank Ezio Panzeri and Gabriele Marchesani for giving us this great opportunity. 

“These two guys can have excellent room for improvement – says president Gabriele Marchesani – and we hope they can get in good shape already from the first races of the upcoming season. Since they were juniors, they’ve shown excellent climbing skills, then we hope that they can impress even in the most difficult routes.“
