“We’ve made a four-year investment in this young man who is part of our Youth Project. He’s got great skills but is quite inexperienced and is still undergoing physical maturation."

Gianni Savio is pursuing his idea of ​​recruiting young talents to rejuvenate his Androni-Sidermec and bring forth youngsters from South America. 

 

Today the Androni-Sidermec team manager has signed an 18-year-old Costa Rican, Kevin Rivera. Winner of the Trofeo Città di Notaresco, Rivera convinced Savio to bring him to Italy for some tests. They showed excellent results and Savio decided to sign him for no less than four years which means that Rivera will have time to grow quietly until 2020. 

 

"After Egan Bernal, Gianni Savio has brought me another talent. I’ve never seen a rider with such a high lung capacity," said Michele Bartoli who did the tests. Nonetheless, Savio plays fown the immediate expectations.

 

“We’ve made a four-year investment in this young man who is part of our Youth Project. He’s got great skills but is quite inexperienced and is still undergoing physical maturation. I intend to let him grow gradually, just like I’ve done with the many young riders I’ve launched among Professionals. Among them, for the last decade, I cite three South Americans - Fredy Gonzales, José Serpa and José Rujano – and three Italians - Alessandro De Marchi, Fabio Felline and Diego Rosa. If we return to the nineties, I’m proud to remember the Venezuelan Leonardo Sierra, the Latvian Champion of the World Romans Vainsteins and the Italian Champion Andrea Tafi, who often won with our team and, after passing to Mapei, got splendid achievements at the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix.

 

Rivera is the tenth new signing of the Androni team.
