During a meeting between the Organizing Commettee of the UCI Track Cycling Nations Cup Cali 2021 and some of the media, it was announced that the Italian Filippo Ganna, who is the current track time trial world champion and four times winner of the individual pursuit (with a standing World Record of 4 minutes and 01,934 seconds), was interested in coming to the Alcides Nieto Patiño Velodrome.
It just takes reviewing the 24 year old Italian’s resume to realize the quality of racer that might be coming to Cali. The 2020 pandemic was no obstacle for his great achievements. He was crowned time trial champion in Italy, he won one of the stages in the Tirreno-Adriático, he also conquered the Time Trial World championship in Imola (Italy) and won 4 stages in the Giro de Italia. In 2021, he placed his signature by winning two stages in the Estrella de Besseges in France and one in the UAE Tour.
