Elia Viviani is back at Politecnico di Milano – Wind Tunnel

Olimpic medalist Elia Viviani is back at Politecnico di Milano Wind Tunnel (GVPM) for a round of tests in view of Tokyo 2020. After the extraordinary gold in Rio de Janeiro 2016 in the omnium, the Italian cyclist was involved in a number of aerodynamic set-ups in order to find the optimal configuration of his technical gear. Supported by the valuable expertise of Stefano Giappino and Luca Ronchi, and in collaboration with the Italian Cycling Federation, Viviani was satisfied of his performance at the end of a long afternoon session: “I am always very thrilled to train here in the Wind Tunnel of PoliMi, as these tests are extremely important for my preparation, in particular in view of Tokyo 2020”. Prof. Marco Belloli of MECCPolimi coordinates the dedicated research group, whose activities are aimed at optimizing the performances of the athletes before the competitions. Over the past few years Alberto Contador, Filippo Ganna, Rui Costa, Philippe Gilbert, Adam e Simon Yates, Luke Durbridge, Anna van der Breggen and Silvia Valsecchi, just to name a few, performed numerous tests at GVPM.
