Vicenza’20: The Mission in Qatar for the Team Led by President Pasqualin

The Vicenza 2020 committee for the World Championships in Veneto finds an enthusiastic ambassador in Eddy Merckx.

The mission by the Vicenza Promotion Committee vying for the 2020 road cycling World Championships in Veneto has wrapped up their work here, in official meetings that are coming to a close between Italian Federal President Di Rocco and the higher-ups of the UCI International Cycling Union – President Brian Cookson, Vice Presidents Mohamed Wagih Azzam, Tracy Gaudry, David Lappartient, and practically all of the11 members of the commission.

The team was led by Claudio Pasqualin, Esquire, President of the Promotion Committee, and made up of Moreno Nicoletti (Vice-President) and Alessandro Belluscio (Councillor).Together they mustered some indispensable elements needed to complete a competitive Dossier for this candidacy bid, which will be presented to the UCI within the established and confirmed deadline of December 31st, 2016. That is two and a half months away.

In the following weeks the Promotions Committee will meet with UCI experts to work out some technical issues of the bid; they are also eager to solidify collaboration with Eddy Merckx, a legendary super-champion and a mentor at these World Championships in Qatar. Eddy has accepted the role of Ambassador in renewed ambitions on the part of the Veneto to secure the rights to organize the rainbow kermis in 2020.
