By : Alberto Rigamonti
The ninth edition of the Trofeo Alfredo Binda will be on 1 April 2007. The race takes place on a 15.5km circuit, which will be completed 8 times. The circuit takes in climbs which will test the best in the world, tracing a circuit around Cittiglio, Brenta, Casalzuigno, Casale Alto, Cuveglio, Cuvio, Azzio, Gemonio and then back to Cittiglio. The two climbs on the circuit are the Casale Alto, in the first part of the circuit and the climb of Azzio, which will create an interesting challenge, since it comes just before the conclusion of the circuit.
"We have put together a circuit that has all the required components to make the race a great spectacle. It is technical, has the spectacular climbs," commented Mario Minervino, President of SC Caravatese, the organisers of the Trofeo Binda. "The UCI has shown interest in including the race in the World Cup in the future" Minervino concluded. The Italian Cycling Federation has been working with delegates from the UCI to ensure that the event meets the required World Cup standards.
