The sprinter from Brescia put on the bulletin board the first gem of his career and Ferronato honors him with the pair of wheels that gave him the orange jersey at the Tour of Taihu Lake.
Rosà (Vicenza). A guy comes in the company to nearly 14 on tiptoe, accompanied by the father. Asks the above, he greets the staff, looks around curious to understand where “landed”. The newcomer is Jakub “Kuba” Mareczko of Southeast Pro Cycling Team, for the first time visiting Ursus aftermath of great success on Chinese soil.
He was welcomed by Mirko Ferronato, C.E.O. and Silvia Manfiotto, marketing manager of the Italian company, to which Kuba deliveries helmet and jersey winner of the Tour of Taihu Lake just conquered. Feelings can only be fantastic: a young man full of enthusiasm, his twenty are reflected in the ambition that shines from his eyes, still timid.
A couple of jokes (we discover by Jakub that in China dish – we say strong – was the canned tuna), the exchange of the usual compliments, the signature on the trophies, then it’s time to visit the factory, where the Italian sprinter has been able to follow live the artisanal process of centering applied to Miura TS37 disc brake wheels. A look at the entire production of Made in Italy and Made in Ursus racing hubs. A jump to the OEM department to experience components for bicycles and automotive that every day are produced within the company and which is the real driving force for worldwide exports. The tour, which lasted about an hour, ends with a walk through the spacious warehouse.
It’s about time to say goodbye, but there is still room for a surprise: In homage to the first winning season as a professional, Ferronato gives Mareczko the pair of T47 Miura which accompanied him to become the fastest Italian of the year, getting thirteen hits and coming one step away from defeating in the sprint none other than Mark Cavandish. T47 will then be part of the first bike-trophy in the personal bulletin board of this young #Gladiator studying to become undisputed champion. A wheel that Kuba has had the opportunity to appreciate in particular for the smoothness of the hub and the structural rigidity.
With one last word, the Champion of Italy with Southeast confides to Mirko Ferronato all his crave to obtain good results for the next season. A goal? The first victory in the Giro d’Italia to enter with right in the arena of the best riders of the world. But before to get back on the bike, Kuba will leave for a well-deserved European vacation: together with his girlfriend he will in fact visit Salzburg, Vienna until arriving in Poland for a salute to his hometown.
