And now, I have a new gorgeous Bianchi bike to nurture my cycling passion,” shared Oldani, who became famous all over the World with his “Cucina Pop”, delighting thousands of gourmets at his “D’O” restaurant.
“Sports have been part of my life all the way, and cycling is something I am really passionate about – the Chef explained – and generally, I am a fan of tradition that always look forward to the future and new inventions. Being part of the Bianchi family means a lot to me: it makes me a tiny part of an almost 130-year-long history that continues today through the Bianchi bikes, technology, design and lifestyle”.
Davide Oldani is an international chef and business man. His entrepreneurial spirit recently lead him to attend a class at the Harvard Business School as part of a “Operations Strategy” study case. As a truly cycling enthusiast, Oldani will ride the Infinito CV – the new invention from Bianchi featuring the Countervail vibration cancelling technology (proven in NASA aerospace applications): the ideal bike for long distances to ride with less fatigue and more control.
